'Technology issues' cause dozens of delays at MSP Airport

The problem impacted multiple airlines.

At least two U.S. airlines were dealing with computer and tech issues Monday morning, leading to delays and disruption, including at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Southwest and Delta both began receiving tweeted complaints just before 5 a.m. central time, and quickly responded with vague explanations.

Delta described it as a "third-party technology issue," while Southwest termed it "technology issues."

According to the FAA, "several" airlines were dealing with computer issue. Fox News says United, Jet Blue and Alaska Airlines were among them, and that the main culprit was an outage with "a flight planning weight and balance program called Aerodata."

A spokesperson at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport told Bring Me The news about 60 flights there had been delayed as of about 7 a.m.

Around that same time, Delta began tweeting its third-party issues had been "resolved," adding the airline doesn't expect any cancellations.
