Flights in and out of Los Angeles International Airport were operating normally Tuesday morning after a computer outage at a online reservation system caused delays worldwide.

Airlines at LAX first reported problems in the Sabre reservation system at about 9:30 p.m. Monday.

About 17 flights experienced delays of 15 to 45 minutes, according to Nancy Castles, public relations director at LAX.

Airlines affected included Frontier, American, American Eagle, JetBlue, Virgin America, Alaska, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, British Airways, WestJet and LAN Fiji Air.

Passengers were checked in manually and no flights were canceled, Castles said. The outage lasted about two hours.

Sabre, headquartered in Southlake, Texas, serves more than 300 airlines at 100 airports around the world, according to the company’s website.

It was unclear what caused the computer glitch or how widespread the problem was.
