TOKYO (AP) – More than 1,000 people were forced to spend the night at Tokyo’s Narita airport because of the computer shutdown that halted Delta Air Lines flights worldwide.
Flights were resuming Tuesday morning at Narita, but Delta spokeswoman Hiroko Okada said some more delays were expected.
Narita is the Asia-Pacific hub for Delta and several other US airlines. Okada said six flights were cancelled Monday and 15 more were delayed.
The delays for many stretched overnight forcing them to find hotels, go home or stay at the airport. One passenger who stayed at Narita said all the hotels were full, and he and others were given air mattresses and a sleeping bag.
