1:45 a.m. ET UPDATE: Delta canceled about 1,000 flights Monday due to a loss of power affecting Delta operations systemwide. Additional delays and cancellations are expected Tuesday morning as Delta continues to recover its operations.
Customers traveling Tuesday should check the status of their flight at delta.com or the Fly Delta App, Delta officials said. Customers can rebook their flight via the website.
Delta’s travel waiver has been extended to customers traveling on Aug. 9.
Delta is offering compensation to customers significantly affected by delays or cancellations.
10 p.m. ET UPDATE: Delta expects more than 100 flight cancellations on Tuesday morning as it continues to recover its operations following a loss of power Monday morning. In addition, Delta anticipates roughly 200 delays affecting morning departures. Those numbers could grow overnight as Delta works to reset the operation and get crews, aircraft and other elements of the operation back in place.
Delta has canceled more than 870 flights on Monday. Following the power loss, some critical systems and network equipment didn’t switch over to Delta’s backup systems. Delta’s investigation into the causes is ongoing.
Systems are fully operational and flights resumed hours ago but delays and cancellations remain as recovery efforts continue into the evening.
