Delta Air Lines warned Wednesday that flights may be delayed after a “technical issue” hit some of its platforms, preventing passengers from checking in.
“Delta is working quickly to address a technical issue impacting some of our applications including customers’ ability to book, check in and board,” the airline said in a statement. “Some delays are expected.”
Delta did not immediately say what caused the issue or how many flights were delayed.
U.S. airlines suffered 34 computer outages between 2015 and 2017, and 85% of them caused flight delays and cancelations, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office last week.
