The week got off to a nightmarish start for Delta and its passengers.

Delta Air Lines flights were grounded for at least six hours early Monday by a global computer system outage, causing large-scale cancellations and stranding hundreds of thousands of passengers.

At 8:40 a.m. ET, Delta said the ground stop had been lifted but that only "limited" departures had resumed. It's expected that flights will be delayed and canceled throughout the day.

"Customers heading to the airport should expect delays and cancellations," Delta warned.
