Delta passengers flying out of Tulsa had to wait in a long line at the counter Monday morning. An unexpected system outage grounded all flights.

The airline lifted the ground stop and resumed limited departures around 7:30 a.m., but delays and cancelations should be expected.

According to the Tulsa International Airport’s website, a Delta flight scheduled to depart for Detroit at 5:45 a.m. has been delayed until 7:30 p.m. A flight set to depart for Atlanta at 5:55 a.m. was delayed until 8:465 a.m.

Also, an arriving flight from Atlanta is now delayed to 10:49 a.m.

Passengers are receiving their boarding passes, but the system outage is slowing down the check-in process.
