Southwest, Delta reporting system-wide computer outages

02 April 2019

The technical issue forced Southwest Airlines, which had some of the biggest issues, to shut down all USA flights for about 40 minutes Monday.

It's unclear how numerous delays were caused by the AeroData issue. They tweeted "Apologies for the inconvenience this morning as we fought through some technology issues".

The three airlines have confirmed that they are experiencing systemwide outages that are disrupting flights, reports CNBC.

The spokesman, Greg Martin, said the outage was "short-lived" and delays should be "minimal".

Multiple airlines, including Southwest, Delta and American, reported delays nationwide following a computer outage.

Delta's social media account said the issue had prevented "Delta Connection flights from being dispatched". "No cancellations are expected due to the issue and our teams are working to resolve some resulting delays".

American Airlines also issued an update claiming that the problems had been "resolved". Without the computer-generated paperwork, planes stayed grounded across the country early on Monday morning. The agency recommended people contact their airline directly for flight information and updates. Customers can check their flight status or by downloading the JetBlue Mobile App. "It would be best to check with the individual airlines regarding the status of their flights".
