LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Widespread flight delays are popping up all over our country Wednesday morning, and officials are blaming them on an FAA outage.

There were about 1,200 delays reported as of 6 a.m.  The majority of them are happening along the east coast.

FAA officials say they’re working on the problem and that some functions were beginning to come back online around 6:30 a.m.

United Airlines temporarily delayed all of its domestic flights with representatives saying they would have an update after learning more about the issue.

Here in Nebraska, there have been several changes to flights in Omaha.  No word if it’s because of the FAA problem.

The airport here in Lincoln appears to be unaffected at this time.
