3 Major US Airlines Experience System-Wide Computer Outages


Recommended Posts

The technical mishap is said to have affected major national carriers United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines, and follows on widespread outages last week causing delays at major airports across the country.


The US Federal Aviation Administration reported Monday that multiple US airlines are facing problems "with a flight planning weight and balance program called AeroData" which has affected mainline and regional operations "to varying degrees."


The problem is said to have caused widespread flight delays, and forced taxiing planes to return to their gates.


In addition to the major carriers, JetBlue and Alaska Airlines have also been affected, according to the FAA.


Delta and Southwest each acknowledged the problem on Twitter, saying they were was working hard to resolve the issue.


American Airlines similarly confirmed that the glitch had impacted regional carriers, tweeting that the issue was indeed caused by AeroData. Earlier Monday, carriers reported facing issues with their social media accounts, with United saying it was unable to create paperwork.
