United Airlines Has Another Computer Outage

Chicago-based United Airlines suffered another huge computer outage today that delayed passengers around the globe for hours.
The outage at the world’s largest carrier lasted for about two hours this morning. It affected half of all flights on United’s main network and was at least the third major outage for the airline since June.
Major delays across the world can easily ripple throughout an airline’s network. United runs about 5,500 flights a day worldwide.
A spokesman for United Continental Holdings says the outage didn’t affect its regional flights on United Express. Spokesman Rahsaan Johnson says only those airplanes that came from the former United were affected.
United has been struggling with technology problems since March, when it switched to a passenger information computer system that was previously used by Continental. The airlines merged in 2010. (AP)
