Dozens of flights have been delayed after the FAA said several major airlines are experiencing an IT issue which is causing delays. Almost 1,000 Southwest flights had been delayed by midday, according to FlightAware.

American said there were "a handful" of inbound and outbound delays from Miami.

United said 150 flights by its United Express regional carriers were delayed. We will update this story if more information becomes available.

When flights are delayed or canceled, airlines face immediate customer backlash even when the issue is not immediately theirs to own.

The company later issued a statement that said, in part, "A brief third-party technology issue that prevented some Delta Connection flights from being dispatched on time this morning has been resolved".

The agency issued a statement around 8.30 a.m. ET, saying the issue had been resolved.

Everton boss 'not happy' about Pickford fracas
Unai Emery's Gunners are looking to cement their top-four place but away wins have been hard to come by with only five all season. Everton could lose five consecutive Premier League matches against Arsenal for the first time in 19 years.

USA airlines started returning to full service early Monday after a disruption of data they needed for takeoff caused delays across the country.

Southwest and Delta both acknowledged on social media they were experiencing issues with their systems. "Apologies for any troubles.

There was a system-wide outage this morning, Thank you for your patience", Alaska tweeted to one frustrated customer. Make sure to check with your airline before heading to the airport to check the status of your flight.

The commuter troubles come a week after Sabre - a company used by airlines for printing tickets and making reservations - experienced technical issues.

This resulted in several airlines reporting problems last week.

Southwest was the carrier with the most delays (18%), but that was likely due to the carrier's continuing issues revolving around the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max jetliner.
