Delta Airlines flight 284, Air Nippon flight 6 and Japan Airlines flight  62 will not depart on scheduled times.

The flights were cancelled and delayed in response to damage caused by a magnitude-8.9 earthquake in Japan Friday.

"'We're advising travelers to contact their airlines about the most up- to-date information about flight cancellations and delays," Los Angeles  International Airport Public Relations Specialist Katherine Alvaredo said.

A Delta Airlines flight departing for Japan after midnight was  cancelled and another American Airlines flight to Honolulu returned after  takeoff to Los Angeles International Airport following the 8.9 earthquake and  tsunami in Japan.

A Tokyo Delta flight scheduled for midnight had passengers boarded,  ready for take off and was cancelled, Alvaredo said.

A second flight that was en route to Honolulu from LAX was cancelled and  returned to Los Angeles when the tsunami warning was issued in Hawaii,  Alvaredo said.
