Power Outage Knocks Delta's Global Operations Offline

A power outage in Atlanta, which began at approximately 2:30 a.m. ET. on Monday, hit Delta's computer systems and operations worldwide, forcing the airline to cancel or reschedule thousands of flights. The stoppage of operations appears to have lasted over five hours.

The disruption in Delta's global network operations follows a multi-day disruption in service last month at Southwest Airlines, which attributed its outage to a router failure and a cascading series of IT problems.
