Alaska Airlines: Most flights on time
WASHINGTON -- Alaska Airlines and its Horizon Air affiliate say they have resolved a computer outage that led to the cancellation of 150 flights Saturday, disrupting travel plans for more than 12,000 passengers of the regional airline.
The company says most flights are now operating on time, though about a dozen have been delayed due to crew scheduling issues. The company recommends passengers check their flight's status online.
Passengers are boarding the next available flights at no charge, and in some cases are flying with other airlines, the company says.
Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said the outage occurred when a transformer blew and knocked out the company's computer system for booking flights. Technicians had been trying to install a backup power supply for the system.
