United ground stop lifted for U.S. and Canada

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A nationwide ground stop issued by United Airlines earlier due to an equipment outage has been lifted, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

“United Airlines asked the FAA to pause the airline’s departures nationwide,” read a statement from the FAA. A duty manager at SFO told KRON4 that United is currently experiencing a systemwide software glitch that started around 9:15 a.m.

“We are experiencing a systemwide technology issue and are holding all aircraft at their departure airports,” a United spokesperson told KRON4. “Flights that are already airborne are continuing to their destination as planned.”

The airline said it is investigating and will share more as information becomes available.

Normal service is expected to resume by 11 a.m.
