The FAA noted that several airlines were experiencing computer issues Monday morning.

United said 150 flights by its United Express regional carriers were delayed.

Affected airlines include Southwest, United, JetBlue, Alaska and Delta airlines.

The system outages led to planes becoming temporarily grounded - creating delays.

Buffalo's deficit grew to 19-6 after the first nine minutes, and at that point, the Bulls were being outrebounded 15-3. And at this stage, neither side is about to alter their identity with a spot in next week's Final Four on the line .

"There was a system wide outage affecting all airlines using a particular system, including us", Southwest tweeted to a customer.

The issue has been resolved, but it may cause some a disruption in travel plans.

With this in mind, it is easy to see how the countless flight delay and cancellation issues faced by several major US airlines were a result of malfunctions or outages within Aerodata's flight planning weight and balance program.

Southwest had 585 delays at 9:06 a.m.in NY, according to flight tracker website FlightAware.com, while JetBlue had 199.

The delay hit Southwest shortly after 7 a.m. ET, forcing the ground stop that lasted until 7:45 a.m.

"Earlier this morning, AeroData had a technical issue that impacted a few of our regional carriers".

Of the affected airlines, the Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport shows just a handful of canceled flights. In addition to the weight and balance system, the company also provides airlines with aircraft performance data, other aircraft management applications, and a "compute server system" to host these services. The Federal Aviation Administration's website has a feature that allows users to see the type of delay airports across the country are suffering.
