DALLAS (WKOW) -- A spokesman for Southwest Airlines says a system-wide computer problem forced them to ground its entire fleet preparing for late-night departures.
As of 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, officials say service is back up and running.
The system-wide computer problem affected the airline's ability to do such things as conduct check-in, print boarding passes and monitor the weight of the aircraft. Flights in the air were unaffected.
The glitch started about 10:00 p.m. on Friday. About 250 flights were grounded because of the glitch.
The Dallas-based airline conducts on average 3,400 flights a day.
