Travel Woes Continue to |Mount for Delta Flyers

     (CN) – A day after a systematic failure grounded Delta Air Lines flights around the world, the airline cancelled more flights on Tuesday as it struggled to get travelers to their destinations and crews and equipment in their proper locations.
     By mid-day Tuesday, nearly 400 Delta flights had been scrubbed and another 700 delayed.
     The disruptions followed about 1,000 cancelations and 2,800 delayed flights on Monday after a power outage at Delta’s Atlanta headquarters tripped a meltdown of its booking, communications and other systems.
     The airline posted a video apology by CEO Ed Bastian. And it offered refunds and $200 in travel vouchers to people whose flights were canceled or delayed at least three hours.
     Delta also extended a travel-waiver policy to help stranded passengers rearrange their travel plans.
