The aircraft continued the flight after about 6 hours on the ground, made another stop in San Juan (Puerto Rico) for a crew change and reached Atlanta with a delay of about 11 hours.

Several passengers reported independently the captain announced a generator had failed prompting them to divert to Port of Spain.
