United Airlines: Computers coming back online

CHICAGO -- United Airlines passengers across the country were stranded for hours Friday night after a computer crash grounded flights.

The airline announced on Twitter shortly after 1 a.m. CDT Saturday that its computer systems were up and running, about five hours after the systems went down. The airlines said it was in the process of resuming operations.

United did not return calls seeking comment.

As a result of the outage, long lines of passengers formed at check-in counters at Chicago's O'Hare International and Denver International airports, two of United's largest hubs.

The plans of landscape designer Stephanie Hochman, 26, of Denver, to fly to Wichita, Kan., to visit her family were stymied by the outage.

"I was rushing, because I was running a little late," she said. "I kept checking computers to see if the flight was still on time. I thought it was all good, until I got to the airport and saw the people standing around at the checkout counter."
