Southwest Airlines canceled several flights Saturday morning, after a computer glitch grounded the entire fleet overnight. Fourteen flights were canceled Saturday morning across the country because crews were not able to get to airports in time to make the scheduled takeoffs, according to airline spokeswoman Michelle Agnew. On Friday night, 43 more flights were canceled in the western half of the country.
An estimated 250 flights most of them on the West Coast were grounded at least temporarily Friday night. The glitch impaired the airlineâ€™s ability to do such things as conduct check-ins, print boarding passes and monitor the weight of each aircraft.
