A Delta Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N329NB performing flight DL-368 from Mexico City (Mexico) to Atlanta,GA (USA), was accelerating for takeoff when the crew rejected takeoff due to another aircraft's runway incursion. The aircraft slowed safely, taxied for another departure and departed about 10 minutes later.

Mexico's AIB reported an Interjet aircraft crossed the runway without clearance prompting the Delta crew to reject takeoff. The AIB did not provide any further details (editorial note: also Mode-S data do not permit to identify more). The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated.
