FOX NEWS - JetBlue has confirmed that a “global” computer system outage was to blame for delayed check-ins and frustratingly long lines at airports where the carrier flies.
“Systems are recovering after a global Sabre outage impacting multiple airlines,” JetBlue wrote in a statement shared with Fox News on Tuesday morning. “JetBlue customers may experience longer lines in some airports this morning. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience.”
Sabre, a Texas-based company that provides booking and reservation services for several carries, claims its systems are now in “recovery” mode.
"Sabre experienced a technical issue that impacted some of our customers this morning,” the company said in a statement. “We are now in recovery and airlines are returning to normal operations. We apologize for any inconvenience."
