Flights are taking off again at Atlanta’s busy airport, but another day of significant disruptions awaited fliers Monday after a power outage snarled flights there Sunday.
The power was back on Monday, but more than 400 flights had already been canceled at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport as of 8:20 a.m. ET, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. That number could continue to rise Monday as both airlines and the airport try to restart operations after Sunday’s blackout.
In anticipation of that challenge, Delta preemptively grounded 300 of Monday’s flights the night before, a move the carrier hoped would give it some slack as it tried to reboot its flight schedule at its busiest hub.
