All United Airlines flights in US grounded due to computer system glitch

United Airlines flights in U.S. were grounded on Wednesday due to computer system glitch, according to FAANews. A major computer connectivity problem.

A call to the airline was not immediately returned.



There will be a significant ripple effect through the day. Flights in the air are not affected, until they land. There is a ripple effect on international flights also they say. Hand written boarding passes, electronic boarding passes not working. its a mess... Planes backed up on runways all over...


Technical glitch disrupts United flights nationwide

An apparent computer glitch has grounded many – possibly all – United Airlines flights around the country Tuesday morning.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a ground stop for most United flights across the country, with language suggesting that a technical glitch with the airline's reservation system.

United customers took to social media in droves to complain about long lines and problems checking in for flights. United employees at several U.S. airports reportedly have told fliers that the carrier was suffering from a computer outage.

United's flight information boards were completely blank at some airports, according to photos posted on social media.

The FAA's ground stop covered all of United's mainline flights, with the agency indicating the stop was done at the airline's request. The United Express flights operated by United's regional partners have since been released from the ground stop, but such a broad problem would be all but sure to affect all flights operating under the United brand.


All United Airlines flights are under a ground stop Wednesday morning, according to an alert from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The warning said an “automation issue” was causing the problem. It was not immediately clear how long the ground stop would be in place.

United Airlines did not immediately post details about the cause of Wednesday’s problems. A phone call and email to the airline was not immediately returned.

The airline carrier is one of the biggest in the country, serving about 16 million passengers a day.
