U.S. Flight Disruptions Could Last Days Following FAA Outage
More than 7,300 flights were delayed and 1,100 canceled
U.S. flights were slowly resuming departures and a ground stop was lifted after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) scrambled to fix a system outage overnight that had forced a halt to all U.S. departing flights.
More than 7,300 flights were delayed and 1,100 canceled according to the FlightAware website in the first national grounding of flights in about two decades, industry officials said.
The total was still rising and officials said the outage could cause delays through at least Thursday, if not longer, according to several airlines.
