Delta Airlines has grounded flights for this morning because of a computer outage. 

The airline has been tweeting customers, saying its IT systems are down everywhere and that “flights awaiting departure are currently delayed.”          

The airline says flights enroute have been operating normally.

Confirmation of Monday’s troubles came in an official account that responds to customers via Twitter.

The airline declined to immediately comment by phone and it was unclear whether all its flights were affected.

“Delta has experienced a computer outage that has affected flights scheduled for this morning,” the company tweeted to customers affected by delays.

Several applications were affected, including the company’s website.
