Georgia Power says Delta Air Lines equipment failure led to outage

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A failed piece of Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) equipment led to a power outage that crippled the carrier’s computer system on Monday, causing hundreds of flight cancellations, a spokesman for power utility Georgia Power told Reuters.

“It was a failure of Delta equipment,” Georgia Power spokesman John Kraft said, adding, “there wasn’t an area power outage” and the Delta problem did not affect other power customers.
