He doesn’t actually know who is to blame but he already says he wants them to pay,
“I don’t know whose responsibility it is between the airport and Georgia Power, but we’re going to have conversations with both of them.”
Since Delta has largely abided corruption in airport contracting there for years I’m not super sympathetic to a claim against the airport, especially since the airport now needs these funds out invest in its operation (and since Delta recently re-upped its airport lease it’s difficult to recoup the costs). As for Georgia Power, they’re more likely well-positioned to tell Ed Bastian to go pound sand. I know I’ve never gotten my power company to cover the cost of spoiled food in the refrigerator when my power went out.
