Computer glitch prompts flight delays at Air Canada

CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Air Canada suffered a computer glitch on Monday that prompted an unspecified number of flight delays across its Canadian network, a spokesman with the country’s biggest airline said.

Air Canada’s computers appeared to be coming back on line by around midday, spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick said.

“I think it caused some delays this morning, but beyond that they couldn’t tell me what the impact will be. The hope is everyone will get to where they’re going today,” Fitzpatrick said.
