Delta Air Lines –  the second largest airline in the world – is reporting that all flights have been suspended “due to a system outage nationwide.” Social media users have posted photos showing long lines of passengers waiting to check-in at airports. “Our systems are down everywhere. Hopefully it won’t be much longer,” Delta Air Lines said in response to a passenger’s tweet. “Delta is advising travelers to check the status of their flights this morning while the issue is being addressed,” the Atlanta-based carrier said.

According to Twitter accounts, passengers are stuck at Heathrow Airport in London, Málaga Airport in Spain, Keflavík International Airport in Reykjavík, Iceland, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Rome Ciampino Airport.

Delays have also been reported at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport San Francisco International Airport and Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport in Florida.

“We’re currently experiencing system issues and working to resolve it asap,” Delta told another passenger on Twitter.

The failure reportedly caused problems with checking into and boarding Delta flights.

U.S. carriers experienced a series of technical disruptions to flights late last year and early in 2016, including one at American Airlines that halted flights to three of its largest hubs in September and a reservations-system glitch at Southwest Airlines Co. in October. Southwest experienced a computer failure in July that prompted cancellations of more than 1,000 flights, though said it didn’t appear to be related to the October incident.

Delta Air Lines is the second-largest airline in the world, topped only by American Airlines. In 2015, it came in third for amount of passengers, with almost 140 million traveling on the airline. It was unclear if the system failure was related to a hacking attempt, especially one originating at the Kremlin.

    H1B’s on strike…or perhaps some cheaper ones were recently acquired to fill labor slots?

  • Perhaps it’s a virus that is the cause (sarcasm), I have been saying for sometime, we are in the sphere of the twilight zone.

  • Jonn

    So, let’s recap. The computer system for the second largest airline in the world is down, due to some kind of hardware or software incident. Normally, larger companies (and especially airlines) have secondary hardware and software on “hot standby.” Both are run independently of one another so that one cannot affect the other. The fact that their systems are still down indicate that BOTH the primaries and backups have failed.

    Ask yourself…what could cause both to fail? I can think of only two possibilities: One is deliberate sabotage. The second? A planned or “forced” outage.

    Again, ask yourself: Who benefits from Delta’s systems being down? Who would want a whole bunch of people stranded, out of position, away from where they want or need to be? Who would want to, perhaps, test such a scenario?

      The Russians?….. Well they get blamed for everything and anything at the moment

    I smell a rat. I bet they are using the same computer systems as the VA medical centers, the VA seems to crash every time I go there. Anyone else notice the VA systems always down?

    Delta bosses didnt pay their subsciption charges this month to The Clinton Foundation so Hillary flicked a few switches.

    I wonder if Delta is trying out for an IRS service provider?
