United Airline Flights Resume After Major Delays Across the Country

Posted By on Thu, Nov 15, 2012 at 11:58 AM

Flights at the San Francisco Airport and across the country are getting back to normal this morning after a computer glitch grounded some flights.

Fox Business reports that the computer problems affected United Airlines ground operations and delayed flights across the nation.

United had been telling passengers to rebook their flights on other airlines, but now everything appears to be back on track.

The computer glitch appears to come from United's Unimatic program which managers its ground operations. The malfunction delayed certain flights nationwide but operations are now under way.

United told Fox that it had recovered some of its computer capabilities by 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time, but was unsure of when it be completely operational.

We'll keep you posted on further developments.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
