Metro Airport officials say Delta flight schedules are returning to normal after many cancellations and delays on Monday.

Delta flights were grounded worldwide Monday after a power outage in Atlanta caused a global computer failure.

Metro Airport spokesperson Erica Donerson says the situation has significantly improved, but there are still delays.

“So we encourage anyone who’s planning to fly out from Detroit Metro on a Delta flight to call ahead, or log on to or use their fly delta app to check the status of their flight,” Donerson says. 

Donerson says she expects fewer flight delays today.
