United Airlines flights were flying out of Hawaii airports on time on Saturday after a five-hour computer outage a day earlier left thousands of travelers stranded at airports around the country.
The Honolulu Airport's website showed United flights were leaving as scheduled Saturday. No problems from the computer glitch were reported in Hawaii, said Department of Transportation spokesman Dan Meisenzahl.
Friday's outage caused two outbound flights from Honolulu to be delayed for several hours.
The system was down from about 2 to 7 p.m. Hawaii time Friday, forcing United to cancel 16 flights Friday and 15 Saturday nationally, according to the . A spokeswoman for the airlines said she could not comment about the underlying cause of the system crash, the report said.
United said Saturday its planes were flying once again, but the airline could be experiencing some residual effects on flight operations throughout the weekend.
