A sudden power outage Sunday afternoon at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport grounded more than 1,000 flights.

The airport is now working with Georgia Power to figure out the cause of the outage, he said.

It's a far cry from April, when a massive thunderstorm outbreak grounded Atlanta flights for most of one day. Thomas says Delta added roughly 20 flights, booked passengers on empty seats on regular Monday flights, and found places for them on other airlines.

Delta passenger Emilia Duca, 32, was on her way to Wisconsin from Bogota, Colombia, when she got stuck in Atlanta. As crews worked to restore power, security teams swept the airport to make sure the facility was secure.

Flying home for the holidays was more of a headache than usual for those traveling through the Atlanta airport on Sunday.

Almost 1,000 flights in and out of Atlanta, a major hub in the USA system, were canceled Sunday, according to a flight-tracking website. The airport terminals were dark and crowded with travelers. Hundreds of flights were canceled, and the travel slowdowns continued early Monday as airlines tried to deal with a huge backlog of passengers.

The Jacksonville International Airport is experiencing delays and cancelations of flights coming to and from Atlanta, according to the airport's website. "However, departures are delayed because airport equipment in the terminals is not working".

Delta, which has its largest hub in Atlanta, canceled 300 flights Monday, most of which are morning, inbound flights to Hartsfield-Jackson. "We then got Concourse F up and running". Almost 2,500 planes arrive and depart each day. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, but nothing suggests it was set deliberately, he said.

There are reports from people at the airport that flights are delayed and inbound flights can not deplane due to lack of power in the jetways.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported a pilot relayed a message to passengers saying a construction crew severed a power line that serves the airport.

That wasn't enough to comfort Jeff Smith, 46, of Pittsburgh, who ended up stuck in a plane on the tarmac for three hours after it landed.

Klein and her fellow passengers would be stranded on the tarmac for upwards of 7 hours before being allowed to deplane.
