Southwest flights to Birmingham delayed after computer issues

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Some flights to Birmingham are delayed because Southwest Airlines is having technical problems.

The website is down, and it’s not known when it will be up again. Flights are being delayed as a result.

A passenger from Birmingham flying back from Orlando spoke to CBS42 News. He said most passengers are okay but frustrated. He says passengers are being given paper boarding passes because their scanners aren’t working. His flight was supposed to leave at 5:50 p.m., and is boarding now.

Southwest Airlines responded via Twitter, saying they are working hard to resolve the issues.
