A power outage at a data center grounded and delayed JetBlue Airways flights in the Southland and across the country Thursday.
“We’re experiencing intermittent network issues due to a data center power outage,” according to a mid-morning Twitter post by the airline. “We’re working to resolve & should be restored shortly.”
The outage was at a Verizon data center, according to JetBlue, which reported at 1:50 p.m. that the problem had been fixed and systems were being restored.
By 2:50 p.m., the airlines reservation system was back online, but some flights were expected to be delayed or canceled altogether.
Only three departing JetBlue flights were delayed at LAX, according to Katherine Alvarado of Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that runs the airport.
No incoming fight delays were immediately reported.
A handful of flights also were delayed at Long Beach Airport.
