However, when a major power outage crippled Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, Chick-fil-A opened its doors.

A power outage at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport left thousands of travelers stranded on planes and at the airport.

The believe it was sparked by a switch-gear that failed, grounding more than 1,000 flights in Atlanta. But he said he was told it could be Tuesday before he gets a flight home.

The fire damaged two substations serving the airport, including the system that provides backup power, according to CNN. "Light "Night of the Living Dead" or something like that", Gines said, adding that fellow travelers seemed like they were in a daze. Global flights were being diverted, officials said.

It is not known how many flights may be affected. The AJC reported that all flights had been canceled and baggage is being held in a secure area.

Delta Air Lines, with its biggest hub operation in Atlanta, will be hardest hit.

City and airport officials distributed the sandwiches to the stranded passengers.

When Delta flights were grounded last spring because of a storm in the South, it took the airline five days - and about 4,000 canceled flights - before it fully recovered.

Some Monday flights were affected by the outage. American Airlines canceled 24 departures and an equal number of arrivals, spokesman Ross Feinstein said.

Passengers stuck on the train that moves passengers between terminals were rescued by firefighters. As of this morning, the afternoon and evening flights still appear to be on time, she said.

Officer Lisa Bender of the Atlanta Police Department said officers were at the airport to help with crowd control and managing traffic around the airport. "So obviously, there was no early morning departure to Atlanta". Southwest, United and JetBlue also reported scores of cancellations and delays.

It is one of the busiest airports in the world with on average 275,000 passengers pass through its terminals every day and with about 2,500 flights arriving and departing. Almost 2,500 planes arrive and depart each day.
