United Confirms Software Problems, But Reservation Provider Sabre Tells Benzinga System Is Not Down

A Sabre Corp (NASDAQ: SABR) representative denied rumors Wednesday that its global reservation system — on which United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE: UAL) relies to plan travel — had been down for several hours. The spokesperson told Benzinga that the flight-planning software caused some morning delays, but the company was working with the airline to resolve the issue.

Some travelers took to Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) to share their perspectives.

A United representative confirmed "problems" with the software and suggested that travelers check their flight plans online or on the company app before going to the airport. United could not offer an estimate as to when the Sabre software would be fixed.
