United Airlines flights across the U.S. have been grounded due to an apparent problem with the carrier's computer reservation system.
"We experienced a network connectivity issue this morning," United confirmed in a statement after 9 a.m. "We are working to resolve this and apologize to our customers for any inconvenience."
All United flights at John F. Kennedy International Airport were canceled Wednesday morning, according to International Business Times reporter Chris Harress, who is at the scene. Multiple passengers are taking to Twitter to provide updates on the situation:

Nothing official yet via @united on Twitter, but many tweets that its computers are down. Agents hand-writing boarding passes.
