AKRON -- Nate Bernard is heading home to Fort Myers, Florida.  He says when it comes to flying, safety comes first, but he also doesn't want to be delayed.

Bernard says, "Time is money and I can't be late."

But there was an incident Friday at Akron-Canton Regional Airport that cost some passengers time.

After arriving at the gate from Atlanta, a Delta Airbus 319 had a problem when an engine sucked in a hose from a piece of ground equipment.

Instead of using one of the airport's mechanics, Delta decided to fly in one of their own and the plane was grounded for a couple of days.

The FAA and the airport say it's common for airlines to bring in their own mechanics to fix a problem after an incident. The passengers were eventually put on other planes for their return flights to Atlanta.
