Delta Delays Due to Computer Problem 08 Aug 16

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A massive string of flight delays and cancellations on Delta Air Lines should only affect Delta passengers at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The Atlanta-based carrier said the disruptions were caused by a power outage that began early Monday morning, though it was unclear how that affected the company’s global computer systems. It was also unclear how many flights were delayed or canceled in Minneapolis.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan said Delta travelers have been able to get boarding passes and go through security, easing any potential backups. He recommends that anyone with a Delta flight contact the airline directly to check on any potential disruptions.

By 8 a.m. Monday Delta said computer service had been restored and limited flights resumed.
