Glitch Grounds 20,000 Passengers at Japan's No. 2 Airline

Glitch Grounds 20,000 Passengers at Japan's No. 2 Airline as World Cup Revs Up

A computer glitch at All Nippon Airways delayed 130 flights and forced the cancellation of six others, temporarily stranding more than 20,000 people Monday, a company spokesman said.

The breakdown at Japan's second largest airline came as soccer teams and fans from around the world converge on the country for the World Cup soccer tournament, which runs May 31-June 30.

The problem hit ANA's booking, boarding and reservation systems and stalled operations for about an hour-and-a-half on both domestic and international flights, company spokesman Fred Tanaka said.
