NEW YORK — Dozens of JetBlue Airways flights were delayed Friday morning after a computer failure limited the airline’s ability to dispatch planes.
The system was restored by 10:30 a.m. (Eastern time) but the airline warned that delays would persist throughout the day.
At New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport — JetBlue’s largest base of operations — about a third of all the airline’s flights were listed as “delayed” on the flight monitors. The typical delay was about 90 minutes.
The airline blamed “IT network connectivity issues” but did not elaborate.
