United Airlines computer systems were down on Tuesday morning (L.A. time), leading to some flight delays and inconvenienced passengers.

When I inquired at about 10 a.m. United said in an email that the problem had been fixed.

“This morning we experienced intermittent issues with our passenger service computer system, causing some flight delays,” the airline said in a statement.  “With the system now restored, we are working to get our customers to their destinations as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

At least one passenger at LAX was taking it pretty well, according to a Tweet.


If you get the feeling that this happens a lot, it does. And not just for United. It seems that just about every airline has this problem once or twice a year. Sometimes more.
