Software glitch temporarily grounds all Los Angeles-bound flights west of Denver

Days ahead of what is expected to be Southern California’s most heavily traveled Memorial Day weekend in a decade, a software issue with air traffic control grounded flights headed for Los Angeles on Thursday morning.
The issue kept all Los Angeles International Airport-bound flights from airports west of Denver from departing between 7:20 and 9 a.m., airport and FAA officials said. Flights that already were in the air landed safely, although with a slight delay, officials said.
Passengers from the affected airports could continue to expect delays as the backlog of flights is smoothed out throughout the day, the FAA said.
