Atlanta outage impacts QC travelers

Airport Power Outage

In a statement, the airport said they sustained a power outage shortly after 13:00 (18:00 GMT) on Sunday and were investigating its cause.

Ernest Henderson was looking to see if his 9 a.m. flight on Monday to Atlanta was still in place.

Travelers stranded at the Georgia International Convention Center were also treated with the meals.

Southwest Airlines says seven direct flights (three to Atlanta and four to Dallas) were canceled out of Dallas Love Field on Sunday.

Airport officials said the outage happened yesterday lunchtime. That brought the airport to a standstill and grounded more than a thousand flights, leaving thousands of people stranded.

Due to those delays, Rochau said it is likely to have other trickle-down effects across Delta's system.

One Michigan couple was headed down to Miami to catch a cruise Monday morning, but got rebooked to a later flight that has already been delayed.

"He said the power has been out since 1 p.m. and you're not coming home tonight", Colazzo said.

The airport thanked Cathy and Chick-fil-A on Twitter.

While travelers inside the terminal were left in limbo, passengers on planes were stuck on the runways, some for several hours.

The lights are finally back on at Atlanta's worldwide airport.

It is not known how many flights may be affected.

It is raining in the Atlanta area, but it is not known if the weather played a role in the outage.

Hartsfield-Jackson is the world's busiest airport, handling more than 250,000 passengers and almost 2,500 arrivals and departures every day.

For domestic flights moving through ATL, now the busiest airport in the world, Delta Cargo declared an embargo on all products through the end of the day on Tuesday, Dec. 19.
