Computer Glitch Delays Skywest Flights
ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — SkyWest Airlines says a disruption in its computer network kept its flights throughout the country from taking off for about two hours. Spokeswoman Marissa Snow says the system went down about 5 a.m. Mountain time Sunday and was restored by about 7 a.m.
She says that service from the airline's network provider was disrupted. That kept pilots from getting information about planes including fuel amounts, weight and balance. SkyWest is a Utah-based carrier that services flights for United, Delta, US Airways, American Airlines and others. It was ranked 11th among major airlines in on-time arrivals in September.
