Verizon data center power outage to blame, company says
The airline JetBlue experienced network issues on Thursday that resulted in disrupted travel plans for travelers across the U.S.
JetBlue said it was experiencing problems because of a Verizon data center power outage. “Flights are still departing at this time but customers traveling may experience delays or cancelations,” the company said in an online statement. “Customers traveling today should speak to an airport crew member for an update on their flight. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
According to CNBC, the outage affected the Los Angeles International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport and had spread nationwide. Many people had issues accessing JetBlue’s website.
Many passengers shared their travel woes on social media.
At 1 p.m. EST, JetBlue said power had been restored to Verizon’s data center and it was working to get its systems back up.
