Southwest Back in the Air After Friday Glitch Grounds 250 Flights

Posted By on Sat, Jun 22, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Southwest Airlines was limping back into service Saturday morning following a Friday night system-wide computer failure that grounded its entire fleet of airplanes, canceling 57 flights. Southwest flights at the Boise Airport were all on time Saturday, but the Associated Press reports that 43 of Friday night's cancellations were departures in the western half of the country. And estimated 250 flights—most of them on the West Coast—were grounded at least temporarily Friday night.

Shortly after midnight, Southwest posted on its Twitter page that "systems are operating and we will begin work on getting customers where they need to be. Thanks for your patience tonight."
