(WPRI) — Several airlines reported experiencing computer issues, leading to delays and cancellations for flights Monday morning.
The issue has been resolved but may cause some a disruption in travel plans. There are delays early Monday at airports in Chicago, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami and Detroit.
According to the reports, airlines including Southwest, United, Jetblue, Alaska and Delta experienced issues.
Dan Landson of Southwest Airlines said there was an outage with a vendor that services multiple carriers with data used in flight planning. Southwest said it lifted an internal ground stop at 7:05 Eastern that had been implemented for about 40 minutes. The airline anticipates scattered delays.
Kate Modolo of Delta said that the outage prevented some of its Delta Connection flights from leaving on time. The airline doesn’t anticipate flight cancellations.
American Airlines said the technical issue was related to AeroData, a company that makes aircraft location technology. The glitch affected a few of its regional carriers.
T.F. Green has seen delays and Logan Airport has seen a number of cancellations and delays. It is unclear if these are related to the reported problem.
