A technical outage has affected airports across the country this morning. American Airlines has announced the issue had been resolved. Other airlines were also affected, due to the Sabre airline reservation system being down for more than two hours. If you are traveling today, you might encounter residual delays.
“Earlier today, Sabre had a technical issue that impacted multiple carriers, including American. This technical issue has been resolved. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience,” the statement said.
