Travelers Wait in Line at Philadelphia Airport as Computer Outage Causes Nationwide Disruption
Major delays were reported at airports across the US on August 16 as US Customs and Border Protection reported a widespread computer system outage.
Travelers shared photos of long lines as they arrived at airports including John F.
Kennedy Airport in New York, Los Angeles International Airport, and Philadelphia International Airport, among others.
This footage was shared by Twitter user @sandraaaa7788, who said she landed in Philadelphia from Portugal and the long delays caused her to miss her connecting flight.
She later said she waited a total of three hours in line before making it to the baggage claim area.
