I honestly don't see them having a case against the airport or Georgia Power. If they have an insurance policy that covers such events then so be it but I don't know of any company/organization that's going to pay you for lost revenue. If you ship a critical part that is desperately needed to do whatever it is you need to do tomorrow via UPS and they don't show up then you're only562 going to get your money back for the shipping costs.
With that being said, there seems to be a lot of misplaced hatred towards Delta on these forums but Delta obviously knows what it's doing.
Lol. Legal issues are not as simple as shipping. Read my post above. If you’re so knowledgeable, explain how there wasn’t negligence? Do you know what’s Delta’s contract with the airport says in the way of interruptions?
It’s not simply “lost revenue”. If somebody / entity is at fault because they were negligent, then yes, you absolutely can recover lost revenue. It’s like a slip and fall, the plaintiff can recover lost wages.
I never claimed to be knowledgeable but stated my opinion. Do you know what the contract says? What about when Delta had its computer issues? Does it owe every airport and every Hudson News money?
Apparently it's all as simple as a slip and fall personal injury case.
You said you didn't know of any company that would pay for lost revenue. Hardly an opinion. Regardless, yes, it actually a negligence case is as "simple" as a slip and fall personal injury case. The legal theory at issue is precisely the same. (FYI, I am a litigator.)
When Delta had its computer issues, certainly someone maybe could argue DL owes money, but those airports weren't precluded from operating. The argument that DL owed a responsibility to the airport or Hudson News is far more tenuous than an ATL to DL.
