USAToday is reporting that a broken FAA computer in Atlanta is causing widespread delays across the country. In particular, “Washington National, Baltimore/Washington and Newark Liberty are all listed as having severe flight delays, according to the FAA.”
You can check out the FAA’s website to see if your airport is experiencing delays. In addition to the computer problems, air travelers are being hammered by the weather. Poor visibility and congestion are causing delays of over 2 hours at Philadelphia International, for example.
If you’re flying today, it’s probably best to check your flight status.
