Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman said power went out at 4:30 a.m. when a contractor accidentally cut two electric feeders.
The outage affected Delta’s communication system, the jet bridges leading from the terminal to the airplanes and parking lots 4 and 5. Delta said about 120 flights were canceled and that delays averaged about 3 hours.
