    Delta flights are departing and a ground stop has been lifted after a systems outage Sunday night led to departure delays and cancellations.

    In a statement posted on the Atlanta-based airline's website at 11:45 p.m., CEO Ed Bastian apologized to customers who were impacted by this "frustrating situation."

    Delta says about 150 flights have been canceled, with more expected.

    Bastian says this type of disruption "is not acceptable to the Delta family who prides itself on reliability and customer service."
