Tens of thousands of Delta passengers around the world were grounded indefinitely Monday after a power outage caused a system-wide computer failure.
Check-in systems, airport screens and even the airline's website and smartphone apps are affected by the problem, which began at 2:48 a.m. ET.
The Atlanta-based airline suspended departures until the problem can be fixed, while airport agents wrote out boarding passes by hand.
"Our systems are down everywhere," the airline told customers on Twitter.
"A power outage in Atlanta, which began at 2:38 a.m. ET, has impacted Delta computer systems and operations worldwide, resulting in flight delays and cancellations today," the airline said in a statement.
