Delta Resumes Flights After Global Computer System Shutdown

LONDON (AP) — Delta Air Lines says limited flights have begun several hours after a computer outage grounded its flights around the world and stranded thousands of people.

The Atlanta airline said Monday that delays and cancelations are ongoing.

The airline says that a power outage at a facility in Atlanta at around 2:30 a.m. Eastern started the cascading meltdown.

Flights that were already in the air when the outage struck continued, but many flights remained grounded. Over the next several hours, only a handful of flights took off instead of the usual hundreds, according to flight-tracking services.
