PostHeaderIcon Computer Flight Plan Glitch Cause Widespread Delays

Article Source: Online Shopping Store

CNN reports that a computer flight plan glitch is causing cancelations and delays in flights nationwide.

WSI Inc. — a company that provides CNN weather and other information — said the computer outage started at 5:10 a.m. ET and service was restored at 8:22 a.m. ET.

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed the system went down at 5:15 a.m. ET but did not say the problem had been resolved. FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said air traffic controllers were having to enter the flight plans manually, a process that causes delays.

The problem appears to be across the nation.

The AP says the FAA does not know when the flight plan computer problem will be fixed. Flight plans are currently being entered manually at many airports.

Update: USA Today says the issue has been fixed but the backlog it created could cause problems for travelers the rest of the day.
