Delta Passengers Stranded After Computer Crash Grounds Flights

A power outage in Atlanta, which began at approximately 2:30 a.m. ET (0630 GMT), has impacted Delta computer systems and operations worldwide, resulting in flight delays and cancellations today. The event left passengers of one of the world’s largest carriers stranded at airports around the globe as flights were grounded. Flights scheduled for departure were not taking off, but those already in the air were operating normally, Atlanta-based Delta said in a statement, telling customers to expect “large-scale cancellations”.The problems also meant flight information was not showing correctly on Delta’s website or on airport information boards, it said. “Our systems are down everywhere. Hopefully it won’t be much longer,” the airline said on Twitter earlier on Monday adding that its information technology team was working to resolve the problem. (Reuters)
