LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Officials at McCarran International Airport said computer systems are back online after a system crash that forced delays in the check-in process for passengers Thursday morning.
Christine Crews, a spokeswoman for the Las Vegas airport, said the issue was connected to the network of computers that supports ticketing and check-in for passengers. She said all airlines were affected by the malfunction.
Crews said the problem caused long lines at the check-in counters, and airline ticketing agents were manually issuing boarding passes.
The airport's Twitter account urged passengers to print their boarding passes before they got to the airport so they could go straight to the security checkpoint.
It was not immediately clear what caused the malfunction.
