United computer issues spur complaints on social media

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

United Airlines customers took to social media Tuesday morning to complain of nationwide computer issues that caused delays and boarding problems.

"We experienced an issue with our system earlier. We are working to resolve this and apologize to our customers for any inconvenience," the airline said in an emailed statement.

United did not elaborate on the issue or say whether it had been fixed as of 11 a.m.

The problem appeared to be nationwide. Denver airport officials confirmed the computer problems and delays around 7:45 a.m., according to Colorado news station Fox 31.

Chicago Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride said the airport is "aware that United is having some computer issues," but did not provide further information.

United customers at Dulles, LAX, and O'Hare complained of the computer issues on Twitter.

"Well, this is grand. All @united computers and systems down," @leeleechicago tweeted from O'Hare about 9 a.m.

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins tweeted, "Haha-now all of @united computers are acting up at GR airport so we can't print our boarding passes to get thru security."
