(NEW YORK) — All United Airlines flights were halted nationwide Wednesday morning after the Federal Aviation Administration said a computer glitch — something it called “automation issues” — forced planes to be grounded.

The FAA’s Air Traffic Control System Command Center said planes have been grounded at all airports.

United Airlines, which is based in Chicago, said, “We experienced a network connectivity issue this morning. We are working to resolve this and apologize to our customers for any inconvenience.”

United is one of the world’s largest airlines with nine hubs in the continental United States.
