(NEW YORK) — Delta Air Lines said Monday morning that limited flights have resumed several hours after a computer outage grounded its planes, leaving passengers stranded around the world.
The airline also noted that despite the resumption of activity, delays and cancellations would be an ongoing problem Monday.
Delta's official Twitter account offered up a slew of apologies to annoyed fliers who tweeted their complaints to @Delta.
The tweets confirmed the outage but didn't give any estimate on when it would be resolved.
@foxnewsgal Yes Lisa and we're currently working to resolve the issue. *AD— Delta (@Delta) August 8, 2016
In a statement posted on the company's website Monday morning, Delta warned customers to check the status of their flights before heading to the airport.
"Delta has experienced a computer outage that has affected flights scheduled for this morning," the statement said. "Flights awaiting departure are currently delayed. Flights en route are operating normally. Delta is advising travelers to check the status of their flights this morning while the issue is being addressed."
In 2015, The Economist ranked Delta as the top airline carrier in the world in terms of passengers.
