All United Airlines Domestic Flights Grounded by Computer Outage
All of United Airlines' domestic flights were grounded Sunday night because of a computer outage, the Federal Aviation Administration said as scores of angry travelers sounded off on social media.
International flights weren't affected by the ground stop, which the FAA said was issued at United's request.
The ground stop initially was scheduled to end at 8 p.m., but United tweeted at 8:06 that it was still "working on a resolution." The FAA later extended the ground stop to 9 p.m. ET.

maybe they need a back up system, how did they manage before computers? maybe that could be their backup system.

It took it 17 years, but y2k is finally here!!!
Seriously this seems to be happening quite often these days, perhaps the systems airline use are obsolete?
