United Airlines struggles with computer problems
(AP) — United Airlines is having major computer problems that are affecting its operations at airports, and its website. The airline will only say that it has a “network outage.” Its main website, United.com, is down.
The airline says it is trying to minimize any impact to its operations. United Continental Holdings Inc. has been struggling with computer issues ever since it combined some of its major computer systems in March.
Passengers are lighting social media with complaints about the outages, with some saying boarding passes are being hand-written by United personnel.
