Delta CEO: $25M to $50M Lost in Atlanta Airport Outage

DELTA CEO TO SEEK REPAYMENT FROM AIRPORT AND POWER COMPANY FOR REVENUE LOST DURING SUNDAY'S POWER OUTAGE

(CNN) – Delta reportedly wants Georgia Power and Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to cover losses caused by Sunday’s power outage.

CEO Ed Bastian told the Atlanta Journal Constitution Tuesday 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.

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