Per the FAA, “automation issues” have grounded all Delta flights to domestic destinations, including flights operated by subsidiaries. According to the notice, all international flights are exempt, though based on what I’m hearing, that’s not the case across the board. As of the time of this post the issue is persisting, though hopefully it’s fixed soon. Here’s the FAA notice about it:
GROUND STOP DAL AND SUB CARRIERS TO DOMESTIC DESTINATIONS.
INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT ARE EXEMPT. THIS IS DUE TO AUTOMATION ISSUES
WITH DAL. UPDATE AT 0030Z.
Hopefully this isn’t as bad as their outage last August…
If you’re flying Delta today or tomorrow I’d certainly keep an eye on this, as this could have a spillover effect to tomorrow, even if the issue is fixed soon.
Anyone flying Delta tonight and facing this issue firsthand?
