The effects of Delta Airlines' systemwide delays due to a Monday power outage at its Atlanta computer center were showing up in flights to and from Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Tuesday morning.
The airport’s posting of flight status showed that a 6 a.m. flight to Detroit, Delta 667, and a 6:20 a.m. flight to Atlanta, Delta 1482, were not taking off.
Delta 1121 from Los Angeles to RDU was listed as having no recent information, and Delta 3923 from Hartford, Conn., had not taken off.
Never miss a local story.
Delays on departures that did take off from RDU on Tuesday morning ranged up to 30 minutes.
Delta was offering financial incentives to people whose flights were canceled Monday or delayed more than three hours, and the company’s chief executive officer, Ed Bastian, apologized to customers in a video on the company’s website.
RDU posted a note on Twitter saying, “Flights nearly back to normal for @Delta; however leave extra time for check-in this morning.”
An update that Delta posted at 5:45 a.m. Tuesday said, “ Delta is canceling nearly 250 flights Tuesday morning as it works to reset the operation and get crews, aircraft and other operational elements in place to take care of customers. The airline experienced a loss of power Monday morning that impacted operations systemwide.”
