Several airlines are experiencing delays after being forced to ground flights following a technical issues with a third-party vendor.
Delta, Southwest, JetBlue, and American Airlines all say that AeroData, which provides airlines with the data used in flight planning, was malfunctioning and causing several flight groundings and delays.
AeroData provides weight and balance software that airlines use to determine flight plans and make fuel calculations, among other functions.
According to data from FlightAware, 1,798 flights within, into, or out of the United States have been delayed so far Monday. It is not immediately clear if the delays all stem from the technical issues with AeroData, but is a higher than usual amount of delays for morning.
It appears that the flight groundings were short-lived and that the technical issues have been resolved.
"The service is back on line a few minutes ago and delays should be minimal," Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Greg Martin told CNN Monday morning.
