United Airlines flights were temporarily halted nationwide this morning after the FAA said a computer glitch — something it called “automation issues” — forced planes to be grounded.
The FAA’s Air traffic Control System Command Center reported that planes have been grounded at all airports, although the system slowly returned back to normal.
United Airlines, which is based in Chicago, said, “We experienced a network connectivity issue this morning. We are working to resolve this and apologize to our customers for any inconvenience.”
United is one of the world’s largest airlines with nine hubs in the continental United States.
