Southern California airports face a two hour delay or more resulting from a Federal Aviation Administration computer glitch.

Los Angeles International Airport annouced 2 hour delays after grounding more than 30 flights and diverting incoming airplanes to other airports. Other airports affected by the glitch include LAX, John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Ontario International Airport and Bob Hope Airport in Burbank.

As departing flights started blazing to the skies again, airports broadcasted their news through their official Twitter accounts: McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Bob Hope Airport and San Diego International Airport.

Ian Gregor spokesman of the FAA explained that the glitch occurred at the Los Angeles air traffic control.

The agency issued a nationwide ground stop for all airplanes passing through the airspace managed by the center.

Passengers were advised by airport officials to check their flight schedule of each individual airline for updated itineraries.
