Second day of delays for Southwest Airlines due to a computer glitch

Local News
A second day of delays for Southwest Airlines due to a computer glitch.
 
The issue is not affecting flights out of Rochester yet, but across the country, it’s a different story.
 
The airline announced a nationwide computer glitch has been resolved, and that operations were returning to normal. Sunday, some passengers had to be given hand-written tickets and most were checked in manually using backup servers.
 
The computer problem affected baggage, the airline’s website, and phone lines.
 
Southwest said it was still working today to get some displaced customers into seats and delivering baggage that didn’t arrive. 
 
The problem delayed about 500 southwest flights Sunday. 
 
The airline says there’s no indication that hacking had anything to do with the computer glitch.
