Thousands of Delta Air Lines travellers will have their flights cancelled or delayed on Tuesday as the company struggles to resume normal operations after a computer outage grounded flights worldwide.
The Atlanta-based carrier, one of the world's largest, said more than 100 flights would be scratched and 200 others delayed. Those numbers were likely to grow as the airline works to get aircraft and crews to where they are supposed to be.
"Systems are fully operational and flights resumed hours ago but delays and cancellations remain as recovery efforts continue," Delta said in a statement late Monday.
A power outage at a facility in Atlanta crippled the airline's global computer systems for several hours on Monday, leading to the cancellation of some 900 flights and stranding passengers at airports around the world.
