Delta looking for help to offset $25M in outage setbacks

Posted: Updated:

Delta reportedly wants Georgia Power and Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to cover losses caused by Sunday's power outage.

Delta's CEO told the Atlanta Journal constitution that those losses may be between $25 and $50 million.

That doesn't include the money delta is spending to reimburse travelers for hotel stays.

Hartsfield-Jackson is the world's busiest airport, and the power outage forced Delta to cancel 1,400 flights.

The CEO said he was shocked that it took almost 12 hours to restore power.
