FAA: United Airlines Flights Grounded Nationwide

According to the FAA, all United Airlines flights nationwide were grounded  due to computer issues Wednesday morning. The United Airlines General Manager at PHL tells FOX 29's Jennifer Joyce that the system went back online around 9:30 a.m. The GM added that flights would not be operating with up to three hour delays.

The FAA says the airline experienced computer and automation issues.

United said Wednesday that it resolved the problems, which were related to "network connectivity."

SkyFox was over the Philadelphia International Airport where several planes have been grounded as a result of the issue. 

Officials at PHL suggest that anyone who was planning to travel on United Airlines Wednesday check their flight status. 

There is no word on what may have caused the issues.
