Southwest Airlines worked hard to fix a “systems outage” that caused several delays and cancelations all over the nation this week. 

 

At Tulsa International Airport on Friday, only a handful of flights seemed to be affected but two Southwest flights were canceled. The company said overall, 335 flights were canceled nationwide.

"We are now managing flight delays across our system, with a temporary ground stop in place for those flights that have not left the gate," spokesman Brad Hawkins said in an emailed statement.

Later on Wednesday afternoon, after the initial crash, Southwest was able to restore most of its systems, including its website.
