A computer problem affecting United Airlines grounded its fleet throughout the nation for a time Wednesday, and resulted in delays of about three dozen outbound flights at Los Angeles International Airport as of midday.

An unknown number of inbound flights also experienced some delays, and passengers were reminded to check with their carrier for exact flight times, said Marshall Lowe of Los Angeles World Airports.

According to Mary Grady, also of LAWA, the airline notified LAX that its computer system was out nationwide, but by about 6:45 a.m., the computer glitch had been fixed.

Afterward, passengers were seen waiting in long lines at Terminals 7 and 8, and LAX officials urged travelers to allow more time than usual.
