Air Canada Computer Problems

Air Canada said there was a communications error between the airline's central reservation and check-in system affecting airports across Canada beginning at 0430 Friday morning. The system-wide problem affected both international and domestic flights with the worst delays experienced during the peak morning travel hours.

The delays weren't as bad as the recent problems at LAX.
