A computer failure has caused the suspension of all scheduled flights of United Airlines, reported the online editions of U.S. media. However, as announced by the company through your twitter account, the system has been revived and has begun the process to resume flight operations. The company said its customers affected by the suspension of all operations that can make new reservations, "without penalty".

United Airlines did not provide data on the number of operations or passengers affected by the suspension of operations and reported through its official Twitter account that victims can do and your new flight bookings. According to sources cited by United Airlines this means, the failures started at 8.15 pm (00.15 GMT) New York time, affecting the outputs of flights, airport operations and the reservation system.

Many customers of Chicago-based airline last night were caught in U.S. airports. Since that time, the technicians tried to solve the problem, which seems to have been remedied. The airline passengers respond to the Twitter network as the United web page has also been affected by the decision.

United merged in October last year with Continental Airlines to create world's largest airline, with a turnover estimated at around 29,000 million dollars and over 370 destinations. The two companies still maintain their own IT structure, so Continental's flights were not affected by the fault.
