CHICAGO (AP) - United Airlines is reporting computer problems that are affecting flights nationwide.
On its Twitter page, United reported late Friday the computer outage was interrupting departures, airport processing and reservations. Attempts to access the airline's website are also being stymied.
The computer problems apparently started a little after 7 p.m., resulting in long lines of passengers at check-in counters at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, one of United's largest hubs.
United says it is attempting to resolve the issue. Telephone calls to United for further information were not immediately returned.
