Atlanta's Airport Has Power Again, but Many Passengers Are Stranded

Atlanta's Airport Has Power Again, but Many Passengers Are Stranded

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed also issued his "sincere apologies to the thousands of passengers whose day has been disrupted".

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

The hours-long power outage at the Atlanta airport caused bedlam during the busy holiday travel season on Sunday, with the Federal Aviation Administration suspending incoming flights.

Late Sunday night, while Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport worked to restore power during a massive outage that crippled air travel at the nation's busiest airport, officials handed out Chick-fil-A and water to stranded passengers.

You can see more information on Delta rescheduling here. Delta Air Lines lost power in August 2016, causing more than 2,000 flight cancellations over several days.

While some stranded travelers found rooms in hotels, city authorities also provided shelter at the Georgia International Convention Center.

Delta passenger Emilia Duca, 32, was on her way to Wisconsin from Bogota, Colombia, when she got stuck in Atlanta. "At this point all we can do is wait", Davis said in a Facebook video.

Some passengers complained of a lack of emergency response during the outage, which was especially problematic for those who used a wheelchair to get around.

Update: Power has been restored to Concourses A, B, F, T and the @ATLairport atrium. The chief executive of Georgia Power, Paul Bowers, said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday that he expected the investigation would last throughout the week. She described the Delta terminal as "big chaos" with not enough customer service for the hundreds of people trying to find a flight to their next destination and a place to sleep for the night.
