For those hoping to make it back home on Monday, and their plans called for air travel on United, many passengers faced unexpected delays as United Airlines grounded all of their domestic flights for more than 2 hours Sunday night due to a IT glitch. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that United has faced IT issues grounding their flights.
United has issued a travel waiver for all their flights on January 22 – 23, 2017, allowing passengers to make changes to their flights without paying a change fee or a fare difference.
They’ve shared the following on Twitter:
A ground stop is in place for domestic flights due to an IT issue. We’re working on a resolution. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Per NBC News,
All of United Airlines’ domestic flights were grounded for more than two hours 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.
