So, I got in the line so I could get rebooked and by the time we got there, there was no way we'd make any of our connections.

Reed said Monday that he was hobbled by limited information about the extent of the fire because it took hours to send experts into the substation because of noxious fumes, even as he apologized to the thousands of passengers stranded in Atlanta and other airports. Passengers were left stranded in the dark both inside the airport and in their airplanes, as flights were grounded and not allowed to leave.

Because the fire was in a tunnel "adjacent" to the backup cables, the fail-safe system was knocked out, too, Georgia Power said. Their connecting flight was in Atlanta.

Brosnan said it reminded him of an incident at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, N.Y., where reports of a shot being fired in a terminal caused chaos until it was determined to be a false alarm.

At Evansville Regional Airport, one flight from Atlanta arrived and departed on time, but another departure had a two-hour delay. And they say they are going to be hard-pressed to use the Atlanta airport anytime again soon.

By then, passengers had spent hours coping with darkened terminals, unexplained smoke and fumes, cancelled flights, and a shortage of food.

The 24-hour delay meant Dr. Raymond Brewer had to miss scheduled surgeries.

While the power may be back on at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the aftermath of last night's blackout is still having residual effects for Detroit travelers.

The nation's busiest airport is still trying to recover from a power outage that shut down operations. "The bigger question at hand was we had 100 planes sitting on the tarmac".

Jodi Green's Delta flight from the Bahamas landed at 1:15 p.m. ET Sunday.

The flights canceled Sunday included one from Fort Wayne to Atlanta and three from Atlanta to Fort Wayne, Neild said.

After the interview, LeBron said he walked across the street to a McDonald's restaurant that was out of food and packed with stranded travelers, many sleeping on the floors.

Though Williams remained jovial and upbeat about everything that happened, she did say the worst part of the ordeal was there was no communication from the airport authority or the airline about what was happening.

The ground stop led Southwest Airlines to cancel all operations in and out of Atlanta for the rest of the day, spokesman Brian Parrish said. The Delta check-in process was organized and lines were moving, she wrote.

LeBron was changing planes at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on his way home from Albuquerque, where the Colorado State University football team played in Saturday's New Mexico Bowl.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said the restaurant chain served almost 2,000 meals on Sunday.
