Los Angeles Internatonal computer glitch causes four hour backup
Sunday, August 12, 2007
A computer glitch in the Los Angeles International Airport computer systems caused passengers in four different terminals to be forced to wait for their flights, causing a massive backlog of over 20,000 international passengers.
Los Angeles International Airport, often referred to by its airport code LAX, is the primary airport serving Los Angeles, California, United States. LAX is the busiest airport in California, and the third-busiest airport by passenger traffic in the United States.
Stranded planes were connected to ground power, and incoming passengers that had already landed had access to food, water and restrooms.
