Reservation system outage delays flights worldwide.

The reservation system, called SABRE, went offline at about 9:25 p.m. on Monday, forcing airline employees to manually check-in customers.

That put a number of domestic airlines on hold, including Frontier, American, American Eagle, JetBlue, Virgin America and Alaska.

The outage also affected international carriers Cathay Pacific, Qantas, British Airways, WestJet, LAN and Fiji Air.

At Los Angeles International Airport, about 17 flights experienced delays between 15 and 45 minutes, airport officials said.

LAX passengers were urged to check the status of their flight with their airline before going to the airport.
