Southwest Airlines Flights Delayed Due to Tech Issue

Southwest Airlines flights were delayed across multiple airports late Tuesday night because of a "technology issue," according to the airline.

"We are experiencing departure delays as we resolve a technology issue," an airline spokesman told NBC Bay Area. "We have a team working diligently on a fix, and we apologize to our customers for the inconvenience."

The issue was affecting any cities with remaining departures, and that was mostly the West Coast at the time, the spokeswoman said.

Initial reports had a total of eight flights being impacted by the problem late Tuesday night, including three flights out of Mineta San Jose International Airport.

No further details were available.
