Limited delays at LAX

The computer glitch at a Georgia facility that processes flight plans is creating all sorts of problems in the eastern half of the country. But delays at LAX have been minimal - so far. For departures, an FAA Web site indicates gates holds and taxi delays of 15 minutes or less. Arriving traffic also shows delays of 15 minutes or less (best to check with the airlines for specific flight information). The FAA has a backup system in Salt Lake City, but it's slower. The most seriously affected were Logan International Airport in Boston, Hartsfield Airport in Atlanta, and O’Hare and Midway airports in Chicago. Here's the NYT story and here's the FAA site.
