At least 6 major USA airlines hit with IT outages, flights delayed

Multiple airlines experience system-wide outages across several US airports

Southwest, American Airlines, JetBlue, Delta and Alaska were among the airlines with issues.

Dan Landson of Southwest Airlines said there was an outage with a vendor that services multiple carriers with data used in flight planning.

"Several U.S. airlines are experiencing computer issues this morning", the Federal Aviation Administration said on Twitter, asking passengers to check on their flight's status with their airlines.

A technical glitch hit multiple USA airlines Monday morning, disrupting air traffic in a number of large cities, a US aviation regulator said.

Travelers are still seeing the impacts of a technical glitch that triggered flight delays at BWI Airport on Monday.

The airlines spent Monday morning apologizing to delayed customers around the country. Those flights were headed to New York, Houston, and Chicago.

A fault in software used by most U.S. airlines caused a wave of flight delays this morning across the United States, affecting hundreds of flights.

Other airlines also reported a series of delays as a result of the problem.

Southwest had 585 delays at 9:06 a.m.in NY, according to flight tracker website FlightAware.com, while JetBlue had 199.

Southwest Airlines said it issued an internal ground stop that lasted about 40 minutes.

Delta said some of its flights were impacted. Airlines are urging passengers to monitor flight times for changes throughout the day.

By about 7:45 a.m. the system was back online, he said. Twelve flights were canceled, 10 with Southwest and two with the smaller, regional operator, PSA Airlines.
