LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas say they've fully fixed a glitch that downed a passenger processing system for several hours and caused delays.
The all-clear was announced just after 2 p.m. Thursday.
Airport spokesman Chris Jones says the computer system went down sometime around 8 a.m. and was restored in stages. The cause wasn't immediately clear.
In the meantime, airline companies were manually checking in passengers. Long lines were reported at check-in areas.
The glitch didn't appear to affect inbound passengers.
