Four Alaska Airlines departures were delayed at Bob Hope Airport on Monday because of a system-wide software outage that snarled the carrier’s flight schedules across the country for hours.

The delays rolled on even after the system was back online by the afternoon. A departure slated for 11:15 a.m. to Seattle actually took off at 1:49 p.m. , according to the website flightstats.com.
Later, a 2:18 p.m. flight to Portland didn’t depart until 2:58 p.m.

The biggest expected delay was a 6:55 p.m. departure to Seattle that was rescheduled to leave at 9:37 p.m., the website indicated Monday afternoon.
