"Basically I delayed my flight by a week, and now I'm going back today, and I'm just a half hour delayed. Make sure they're not delayed", said traveler Devi Adea.

Delays were reported Monday morning at other airports including Chicago, New York, Boston, Atlanta and Miami. Delta said some of its flights were impacted.

Last week, computing issues faced by Sabre's flight reservation and booking system impacted multiple major U.S. Airlines leading to the impossibility to issue boarding passes.

American Airlines also issued an update claiming that the problems had been "resolved".

Southwest, United, Jet Blue, Delta and Alaska airlines all use the same vendor - AeroData.

Southwest had 585 delays at 9:06 a.m.in NY, according to flight tracker website FlightAware.com, while JetBlue had 199.

Martin said the impact was "minimal" in terms of the number of planes.

Some United Airlines regional carriers were hampered by the issue, which resulted in delays for select United Express flights, the company said.

Delta advised travelers to check their flight's status.
