    Delta said Monday morning that its flights awaiting departure were delayed because of a widespread computer outage.

    The airline did not provide details of the computer outage or of the number of flights affected, but said in a statement on its website that the problem had affected flights scheduled for the morning.

    The extent of the problem appeared to be global because the airline wrote in a number of tweets that “our systems are down everywhere.”

    The airline confirmed in an update that a power outage in Atlanta that started at 2:30 a.m. Eastern Time had affected its computer systems and operations worldwide, leading to the flight delays. It warned of large-scale flight cancellations on Monday and said that airport screens and other flight status systems were incorrectly showing flights as being on time.
