Southwest Airlines Computer Glitch Causes Long Ticket Lines At LAX

Übermittelt
 
LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (CBSLA.com) — A nationwide glitch in the Southwest Airlines computer system forced ticket agents at LAX to manually process and hand-write tickets on Sunday, leading to long lines for passengers. The Los Angeles Airport Police Department told arriving passengers on Sunday to expect delays. Security camera footage showed a long line for passengers at Southwest ticket desks. Passengers were being asked to arrive 2 hours prior to their flights. (losangeles.cbslocal.com) Mehr...

The best thing is to down vote the message and then repot it via the "Report" button underneath.

True, but I can tell you is a computer professional that many companies don't pay nearly enough attention to software quality, resulting in problems like this. Of course, once something blows up in their face like this then there's no end of money to try and put the horses back in the barn.

“We’re experiencing technology delays on southwest.com, the Southwest Mobile app, and in reservations centers and airports systemwide today which are impacting future bookings and are requiring us to follow manual procedures with Customers as they arrive for travel,” the airline said in a statement on its website.

At least SWA did not, like some other carriers, simply cancel a whole bunch of flights. SWA made the effort to get people where the needed to go.
