This is at least the third major computer outage for the Chicago-based airline since June.
(Fox Business) -- United Airlines (UAL) grounded flights across the U.S. Thursday morning due to a glitch in the computer system that controls the airline's ground operations.
Just before 11 a.m. ET, a United spokesperson told FOX Business that the internal system was “up and running,” adding that the airline is “getting back to normal.”
The problem was affecting passengers across the country, from New York's LaGuardia to San Francisco. The airline was telling passengers earlier in the morning to rebook on other airlines.
The system outage was related to United’s Unimatic, the software used by United ground operations. United said some computer activity had resumed as of around 10:30 a.m. ET, though it was not clear how long it would take to completely resolve all of the issues.
