Around 150 United Airlines flights were impacted by the computer glitch.

It's unclear what caused the systems to experience technical issues.

Allegiant Air - 2192 to Orlando/Sanford - 7:54 a.m. - Delayed to 8:10 a.m.

The FAA said in a statement the airlines were experiencing issues "with a flight planning weight and balance program called Aerodata".

American Airlines said the technical issue affected a few of its regional carriers that operate American Eagle flights.

It was not immediately clear if the latest problems were also related to Sabre.


Details of an aircraft's weight and how it's distributed on board is required before a flight can take off.

AeroData's customers include Southwest, American, Delta, United and JetBlue - all airlines that reported delays Monday.

They say It is clearing up now, but there could be see some impacts throughout the day.

Kate Modolo of Delta said that the outage prevented some of its Delta Connection flights from leaving on time.

Multiple airlines were experiencing outages this morning.

A Southwest spokesman could not confirm how many flights were delayed, but said it was safe to say hundreds. "No cancellations are expected due to the issue and our teams are working to resolve some resulting delays", the Delta statement said.
