Normal operations anticipated later today

Delta officials anticipate returning to a normal operation by mid-to-late afternoon Wednesday following an outage Monday that disrupted the airline’s flight schedule, though a chance of scattered thunderstorms expected in the eastern U.S. may have the potential slow the recovery.

Teams across the airline continued work during the overnight hours to bring an end to the impact of Monday’s outage that disrupted operations. Delta will start the Wednesday operation with a little over 150 system-wide cancellations after roughly 800 flights were canceled Tuesday.

Technology systems that allow airport customer service agents to process check-ins, conduct boarding and dispatch aircraft are functioning normally with the bulk of delays and cancellations coming as a result of flight crews displaced or running up against their maximum allowed duty period following the outage.
