Alaska/Horizon Grounds 60 Flights

Posted By on Sat, Mar 26, 2011 at 1:54 PM

Spring break is not going as planned as hundreds of passengers have been stranded in Boise and across the Western United States.

Alaska Airlines and its Horizon Air affiliate grounded dozens of flights in the wake of a massive failure of its computer systems.

More than 60 flights had been canceled by midday, six hours after the outage began. Alaska/Horizon is promising to rebook passengers without a fee.

Horizon had to reshuffle Boise passengers bound for Portland and Seattle today. Not all flights were canceled, and an airline spokesman urged travelers to check directly with Alaska/Horizon before heading to the airport.
