    A global computer reservation system crashed on Monday night, impacting hundreds of airlines and airports around the world and causing flight cancellations for hundreds of thousands of travelers.

    “Sabre customers were unable to connect to our system for a period of time this evening,” company spokesperson Nancy St. Pierre said in a statement issued early Tuesday morning. “We apologize and regret the inconvenience caused.”

    The outage began around 10:45 p.m. Monday night, according to American Airlines. St. Pierre said that systems were coming back online around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday morning. Fort Worth-based American Airlines confirmed that the outage impacted its operations as well, and said that its systems were coming back online around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
