Agree in principal, the story line would lead you to believe it mainly affected Atlanta.
However, it really affected the areas east of the Mississippi River, because Atlanta is the city where the computer system is located that processes flight plans for this populous region.

Ya it also affected EWR and BOS also but ATL is usually the worst hub to fly out besides JFK and Lagarbage.
