SEATTLE (AP) - Alaska Airlines says its computer connections have been restored, and operations are returning to normal at its airport gates.
The Seattle-based airline says passengers can still expect some delays as the system adjusts.
The problem started just before 8 a.m. Monday when the airline lost its connection to the Sabre reservation system because of two cut Sprint fiber optic lines.
Passenger lines grew at Sea-Tac in Seattle and other airports as the airline was unable to put passengers on planes, except by handwritten paperwork.
The airline says the data connection was restored before 1 p.m.
