Delta Operations Getting Back To Normal At Atlanta Airport After Outage

ATALANTA, GA- In an almost here we go again scenario, Delta Airlines announced Monday an outage caused it to cancel 110 flights on Monday morning and there could be more cancellations later in the day. Overnight, Delta’s domestic departure board was up and running again after a nationwide computer outage grounded at least 150 flights.
Sunday night airline passengers could do nothing but stand in line. This marked the second time in less than six months that the airline suffered a major IT problem that resulted in travel chaos and angry passengers.
An earlier outage back in August due to a small fire caused an electrical system failure at Delta’s main operation center. In the end there were thousands of flights cancelled and delayed over a three day period.

In a statement online, Delta’s CEO apologized to frustrated passengers and said what happened was unacceptable.

“Delta is expeditiously working to fix a systems outage that has resulted in departure delays for flights on the ground. Flights in the air remain unaffected. Delta apologizes to customers for the inconvenience and will provide updates as they become available on news.delta.com”

    You folks at the news station need to update your file photos of the Delta aircraft. Delta hasn’t flown any aircraft with that livery for almost 15 years. And almost 10 years now for that wavy gravy colors in the aircraft in the background. Come on, show some pride in your local Airline.
