UPDATE: The ground stop has been lifted.

United Airlines has issued a nationwide ground stop, which has delayed all flights according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). An equipment issue has apparently caused the outage. This impacts all mainline and regional flights. No flights are able to take off, but those already in flight can continue to their destinations.

No additional information has been provided yet.

Some on Twitter/X are speculating that it’s a cyber attack but this is not confirmed.

United released the statement above that confirms flights already en route will continue as planned.

Anthony’s Take: We’ll see how long this outage lasts and what the eventual cause is once it’s determined. Stay tuned for more details.
