Engadget logo Engadget 8/08/2016 Jamie Rigg

Delta Airlines, however, is living through one of these nightmare moments today, with all departing flights on hold at the time of writing. A widespread computer meltdown is at the heart of the problem, with Delta issuing the standard "we're working on it" statement, and warning any passengers booked in to travel today not to head to the airport without checking the status of their flight first.
