Spirit Airlines blames substantial hold-ups on technical concern

About 90% of Spirit Airlines were postponed Thursday amidst a technical concern impacting the provider's site.

In a tweet published at 8:43 a.m., Spirit stated the problem was impacting Spirit.com, the Spirit Airlines app and its airport kiosks, causing hold-ups.

In an emailed declaration at 10:44 a.m., a Spirit representative stated the concern had actually been dealt with.

“We have actually dealt with a network problem in between 3rd party services that impacted our site, mobile app and some internal applications,” the airline company stated in a follow-up e-mail. “We excuse any hold-ups and trouble, and we're now working our method back to typical operations.”

According to the flight-tracking website Pulse by Anuvu, less than 24% of Spirit flights were leaving on time at 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

By about twelve noon, the figure had actually increased to almost 90%– with more than 3% of flights canceled.

The problem represents an uneasy start to the summer season season as the U.S. airline company market looks for to prevent duplicating the chaos of in 2015, when providers were hobbled by hold-ups and cancellations.

And it comes simply as the Transportation Security Administration reported that 2023 screening volumes have actually exceeded 2019 levels– putting much more pressure on airline companies to fulfill flourishing need.

In a pre-Memorial Day interview, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg alerted, “We're not out of the woods.”

“We have actually seen need come roaring back for flight– and the system has actually had a hard time to maintain,” he stated.
