Computer breakdown snarls United Airlines traffic
A computer outage at United Airlines delayed thousands of travelers on Thursday and embarrassed the airline at the time when it is trying to recover from glitches earlier this year. The two-hour outage held up morning flights around the globe, including five at Logan International Airport in Boston. Frustrated fliers tweeted snarky remarks about the glitch. It was at least the third major computer outage for the Chicago-based airline since June.
