Delta, United and Southwest Airlines GROUND flights across US

Delta, United and Southwest Airlines GROUND flights across US

FlightAware, an airline tracking website, said Southwest had delayed 775 flights, or 18 percent of its US flights on Monday. Airlines say travellers should check online for the latest updates on flights.

United Airlines - 4632 to Chicago - 6:00 a.m. - Delayed to 7:10 a.m.

Airlines were recommending that flyers check their flight status online or with the airport they would be traveling out of.

Southwest and Delta are among at least five major airlines reporting systemwide computer outages Monday morning that delayed hundreds of flights.

Delta said the issue was a "system-wide outage", while Southwest tweeted "this is affecting us on a system-wide level". The FAA announced at 8:30 a.m. that the "issue has been resolved".

According to posts from airline social media accounts, the issues impacted flights system-wide.

Delta said that the outage prevented some of its Delta Connection flights from leaving on time.

Alaska, United and JetBlue Airways were also experiencing disruptions due to issues with the Aerodata system. The airline did not anticipate flight cancellations. Twelve flights were canceled, 10 with Southwest and two with the smaller, regional operator, PSA Airlines. At Denver International Airport the impact appears to be biggest for Southwest Airlines customers.
