United flights at O'Hare disrupted

July 03, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A computer problem disrupted United Airlines flights Thursday at O'Hare International Airport, causing long delays and lines for travelers headed out for the Fourth of July weekend.

The outage affected all of United's computers at the airport and also caused about 100 flights to be canceled as of Thursday afternoon, an airline spokeswoman said.

The problem with the check-in computers ran from 3 to 10:30 a.m., she said.

O'Hare is a United hub, and the problems caused delays at other U.S. airports.

United passengers flying into or out of O'Hare were being allowed to change their reservations free, officials said.
