Southwest Fixes Computer Failure, Sees Normal Flight Scheduleby
Southwest Airlines Co. has fixed computer system failures that delayed hundreds of flights around the U.S. over the weekend as staff were forced to manually process travelers.
“We expect a technically normal day today,” Michelle Agnew, a Southwest spokeswoman, said in an e-mail Monday.
On Sunday Southwest urged passengers to check in for flights and print boarding passes before going to airports and to arrive at least two hours before departures. The issue disrupted the airline’s website, mobile application, reservation centers and airport computers, delaying about 450 flights.
