WestJet and some major USA airlines are dealing with operations issues and in some cases long lines and delays due to technical problems.

Customers at airports across the United States reported long lines and frustrating wait times after a computer system used by multiple carriers went down on Monday afternoon, though the company behind the system says its service is now back online. "We sincerely apologize for any resulting travel delays".

American Airlines stated the technology dilemma was solved.

Sabre Corp. tweeted before midday on the East Coast that it was aware of the outage affecting some of its airline customers.

Monday's outage comes just one month after Sabre experienced a system issue that impacted passengers on March 26, prompting apologies from both American and JetBlue.

"We are experiencing technical difficulties", the airline tweeted to another. "We apologize for any inconvenience", ticket provider Sabre said in a statement.

American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein said the glitch lasted for approximately 45 minutes and was resolved by 2 p.m. ET with no major impact to flights.

Alaska Airlines realised its systems were running and back but several delays could be caused by the outage.
