Computer glitch delays nearly 100 Alaska Airlines flights
Alaska Airlines flight timetables on the West Coast are recovering Saturday afternoon from computer issues which delayed dozens of departures.
Bobbie Egan, a spokeswoman for the airline, said the problem was traced back to a router in Portland, which caused “connectivity issues” with the airline’s flight dispatch systems and delayed nearly 100 flights from 90 minutes to three hours.
“The issue occurred at 1 p.m. Seattle time and we got systems back up and running by 3:30 p.m. Seattle time,” Egan wrote in an email. “We’re working hard to get our customers on their way and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.”
