Headaches for Delta fliers today

Big headaches for travelers flying on Delta Airlines today and – no doubt – for the next few days – or week.

According to the airline:

“A power outage in Atlanta, which began at approximately 2:30 a.m. ET, has impacted Delta computer systems and operations worldwide, resulting in flight delays. Large-scale cancellations are expected today…” 

The airline is posting updates and has issued a waiver for passengers with Delta flights scheduled August 8 through 12.  Tickets must be reissued by Aug 12 and rebooked travel must begin by August 12.

“When rescheduled travel occurs beyond August 12, 2016, the change fee will be waived. However, a difference in fare may apply.”
