I'm getting the home page on the website now, but nothing else seems to be working.

More good news. Some computer systems are definitely back up - and flights are boarding (manually) and actually departing. Web site was down when I checked a few min. ago.

Delta Flights Slowly Resume After Computer Outage Grounds Airline
Delta Air Lines said it has begun to operate some flights following a major computer systems failure that grounded the airline Sunday evening.

The outage occurred at approximately 7:15 p.m. EST. Only flights that had not yet departed were affected by the problem; flights in the air, the airline said, would be able to continue without issue.

By 9:15 p.m. ET, gate agents were able to board passengers manually by entering confirmation numbers into the computer system.... <SNIP>
This link is to an online source to which I contribute and/or have a financial interest.

This is my first Delta flight (as an AA EP on a challenge) and ABE-DTW was delayed mechanical so to get to CAK I routed through ATL. Well, not really through since I'm still here. The lounge cleared out about an hour and a half ago but my ATL-CAK doesn't have a plane or a gate after a supposed 9:15pm departure.

Just remember - air travel is glamorous!

Funny you should ask. My wife is stuck on the tarmac in ATL, and the FAs are blaming the immigration protests. Proving once again that FAs are not the most reliable of sources.

I was able to book a ticket through our corporate site, couldn't add my number, but I'll go back in and edit the reservation. Can't get in to anything though.

... I guess at least some of them are waiting to talk to the GA, so I take it back

I'd give you the web address for the DDTB - - The Depressed Delta Ticket Bookers support group . . . .

But their website is down!
