Multiple airlines report experiencing technical problems Monday morning

Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, JetBlue Airways, and Alaska Airlines were affected, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

It's unclear what caused the systems to experience technical issues. Airlines say travelers should check their websites for the latest updates on flights.

USA airlines started returning to full service early Monday after a disruption of data they needed for takeoff caused delays across the country. That flight was scheduled for 6:50 a.m. and took off at 7:15.

Delta Airlines was responding to concerned customers saying, "Hello". The glitch was resolved this morning, he added. Service has since resumed, but residual delays were expected.

A software outage has grounded planes from several major airlines.

Southwest, Delta and American Airlines acknowledged the issues in tweets to customers beginning in the early hours.

Southwest issued a statement to WFSB-TV in CT.

Almost 500 Southwest Airlines flights across the country were delayed, according to The Weather Channel.

The FAA said later Monday morning that the issue "has been resolved".

There are delays already at airports in Chicago, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami and Detroit.
