Travelers from all over suffered extensive delays and serious travel interruptions when a failure in Chicago-based United Airlines computer systems wreaked havoc on its flights, the third major glitch in nine months. The company was happy to announce operations are to resume, and hopefully for long enough to let travelers fly reliably: it's almost thanksgiving, after all.
Chicago-based United Airlines was working to get flights back on schedule Thursday afternoon after a system-wide computer failure caused numerous flight delays in the morning.
The carrier announced the problem via its Twitter account at 9:20 a.m.
“We’re aware of a computer issue affecting some of our flights,” the announcement noted. “We’re working to resolve it.”
