A system failure has caused flights in the US to be cancelled.
Passengers have been left stranded at airports across the globe as they await further news.
Some have been stuck on aircraft after planned departures were suddenly cancelled.
Taylor Brasher tweeted: ‘Coming up on the 𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐫 mark of sitting on a grounded red eye flight from @flyLAXairport, with still no publicly available update from @FAANews… love it.’ @AmericanAir you have an inside scoop yet on the NOTAM failure/restoration?”
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has reportedly that the United States Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system has failed.
Alexis Uremovich tweeted: ‘Nationwide FAA computer outage has grounded flights this morning! Here’s hoping we get to Disney!’
Alexander W. Clegg added: ‘FAA system down nationwide – all flights are grounded indefinitely. Unfortunately that includes mine’
Bettina Inclán added: ‘The pilot of my @united flight just informed us there is a nation wide outage of FAA computer systems. It’s been down since midnight and forcing a stop to all air travel.
‘Lots of stranded passengers and missed connections.’
The FAA has been contacted by Metro.co.uk for comment.
