Flights Delayed Due To Computer Glitch

Travelers and those picking up passengers are advised to check with their airlines about possible delays.

One of two computer systems that handle flight plans for the
Federal Aviation Administration experienced problems today, causing the other
system to overload and backing up air traffic across the country.

LAX was one of several airports experiencing delays,
according to the LA World Airports website. Travelers and those meeting
incoming flights are advised to check with their respective airlines to see if
flights are delayed.

A FAA facility south of Atlanta
couldn’t process flight data, which sent all information to their other
facility in Salt Lake City. That
system overloaded quickly. FAA officials said they have not lost communication
with planes in the air and that delays are only affecting planes that were
scheduled for takeoff after the breakdown at 1:30
p.m. Central Time.

It is not known when both facilities will be back online.
