USA: United Airlines: computer problem affecting flight plans

United Airlines is experiencing delays at airports across the country Wednesday because of a systemwide computer problem affecting flight plans.


“The system that creates these flight plans for our crews and employees is experiencing a delay,” United Airlines spokeswoman Erin Benson said.

Benson said the problem arose early Wednesday morning, and she gave no timetable for resolution. She said there are a “small number of delays,” but the airline has not canceled any flights.

At Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, there are 44 United flights listed as delayed as of 10 a.m., according to the live flight-tracking website FlightAware.
