All United Continental flights coming and going from the United States are grounded this morning due to a computer glitch related to “network connectivity”.

“We are recovering from a network connectivity issue this morning and restoring regular flight operations. We will have a waiver available at for customers who are able to change their flight plans,” the airline said in a media statement at 7:20 a.m. PST Tuesday morning.

This is the second time in the last two months United has had to ground flights due to a technical problem.
