Reports: Computer glitch causes flight delays in U.S.

Numerous flights were delayed

A computer system used by airline pilots to file flight plans in the U.S. was not working properly this morning, according to news reports by CNN and ABC News.

The problem reportedly caused some air travel delays, with ABC reporting that flights nationwide were being delayed by the glitch as of 8 a.m. ET.

A check of flight delay information at the Federal Aviation Administration's Air Traffic Control System Command Center, however, indicated no sign of delays or computer problems.

According to CNN, the National Airspace Data Interchange Network in Atlanta wasn't working properly, forcing pilots to process their flight plans through the network's office in Salt Lake City.
