Northwest flights returning to normal after computer glitch

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Northwest Airlines says its computer system
is operating normally again and the airline is able to operate a
full schedule.
     
Northwest says 277 of its 13-hundred-plus flights today were
delayed an average of 12 minutes before technicians fixed the
system.
     
Company officials say about 285 departures were delayed an
average of 21 minutes as a result of the computer problem
yesterday.
     
Detroit was the most seriously affected of its three U-S hubs.
Minneapolis-St. Paul and Memphis experienced fewer delays. The
departure delays included international flights.
     
Northwest Airlink flights operated by Pinnacle and Mesaba were
also affected, but no flights were canceled today.
      The problem with a computer system began yesterday afternoon.
