Thousands of travelers on some of the largest USA airlines endured long waits Monday morning, as their flights were delayed due to a contractor's computer problem.

A fault in software used by most U.S. airlines caused a wave of flight delays this morning across the USA, affecting hundreds of flights. The airline said after the systems resumed that the flight would arrive at 8.05 a.m.

"Several airlines are experiencing issues with a non-FAA flight planning weight and balance program called Aerodata", Lunsford said in an email to the Tampa Bay Times. The disruption in service impacted some of its regional carriers and has since been resolved, according to the airline. Travelers were frustrated Monday when their flights were delayed and they were stuck at airports across the country.

Impacted airlines included Southwest, United, JetBlue, Alaska and Delta.
