SAN FRANCISCO -- A computer outage delayed departures of some United Airlines flights nationwide Thursday morning, but the problem may have been solved before it could cause major problems at Bay Area airports.

There was no immediate information on flights delayed at San Francisco International Airport, according to Duty Manager Joe Walsh. The airport's website showed only 3 flights with delays of more than 10 minutes out of more than 300 scheduled.

Walsh said around 7 :40 a.m. that officials from United had told him that they were starting to recover from the delays.

The departure board for Mineta San Jose International Airport also did not show major delays. United ceased operations from Oakland International Airport in June.

This is at least the third major computer outage for the Chicago-based airline since June.
