Atlanta airport power outage impacts MLU passengers

Atlanta airport power outage impacts MLU passengers

Stranded for more than 10 hours during a power outage at the Atlanta airport Sunday, CSU football player Luis LeBron watched people steal food and water from shops, ignoring clerks trying to stop them.

At McGhee Tyson Airport, travelers also experienced holdups, but on a much smaller scale.

From there the delay continued to increase until the flight was canceled due to the atlanta power outage.

As the Atlanta airport is the largest in the country, Darras said flights at McGhee Tyson will likely continue to be impacted for the next 24 to 48 hours before returning to normal operations.

Delta Air Lines said about 900 of its flights were canceled Sunday and about 300 flights will be canceled Monday.

Power at the airport was fully restored on Monday. Some were on planes, but most were in the terminal. Disabled people had to be carried down stairs and escalators in the chaos.

He's spending part of his final stretch in office addressing problems that have again made Atlanta the butt of jokes about its infrastructure problems. But other inbound flights were diverted to other cities, and outgoing flights were halted. Many travelers were stuck in grounded planes for hours. "But, whatever the cause, it feels like this one was compounded by confusion and poor communication".

Georgia Power said the outage was likely caused by an equipment failure in an underground facility that caused a fire, damaging cables and shutting down the electrical system and its backup.

Atlanta-based company Chick-fil-A does not operate on Sundays.

Unable to get on a flight to Newark, he arranged to fly to Philadelphia on Monday evening.

Some passengers told CNN that airport and airline staff offered no updates as hours passed, leaving people scanning their phones and tablets for information.

"I come from Puerto Rico", he said, noting that many there have been without power since Hurricane Maria pounded the island in late September. "This is nothing compared to what's happening over there". He was still hoping to reach his home in Richmond, Virginia, the following day. "So, we rescheduled everything for today, and ironically, we have the exact same flights going home today", Hann said.

In that period of time, however, major disruptions occurred.

News Channel 11's own Caroline Corrigan got an e-mail Sunday, that her Monday morning flight to Atlanta, was cancelled. It stranded others on Atlanta's tarmac as they waited to get off of incoming flights. United Airlines and JetBlue Airways were among carriers reporting delays or cancellations.

By then, passengers had spent hours coping with darkened terminals, unexplained smoke and fumes, cancelled flights, and a shortage of food. Hartsfield-Jackson, which serves 104 million passengers a year, is the world's busiest airport, a distinction it has held since 1998.

Overall, the incident affected one thousand one hundred and fifty departing or arriving flights.
