Significant flight delays for Alaska Airlines

Associated Press

SEATTLE (AP) — Alaska Airlines President and CEO Brad Tilden says there might be a partial solution by noon Pacific time to computer problems that have caused system-wide flight delays for his carrier.

Tilden said Monday he hopes for a full resolution by 5 p.m. and that "we're doing everything we can to get back on track."

Tilden says the computer problem stems from a data outage in the Midwest.

He spoke at Sea-Tac Airport during an unrelated announcement with Delta Air Lines about a new route.
