Delta customers are breathing a sigh of relief.
The airline has resumed service after all flights were grounded on Monday due to a worldwide computer failure.
The company says the glitch was caused by a power outage in Atlanta which began around 2:30 a.m.

The following statement was posted on Delta’s website at 8:40 a.m.
A Delta ground stop has been lifted and limited departures are resuming following a power outage in Atlanta that impacted Delta computer systems and operations worldwide. Cancellations and delays continue.
Customers heading to the airport should expect delays and cancellations. While inquiries are high and wait times are long, our customer service agents are doing everything they can to assist. There may also be some lag time in the display of accurate flight status at delta.com, the Fly Delta App and from Delta representatives on the phone and in airport.
A travel waiver is in effect. Customers who cancelled their flight can get a refund or flights can be rescheduled without a fee.
Customers at Pearson Airport were frustrated about having to wait and took to social media to share pictures of people in long lines.
