Flyers on Delta Air Lines experienced delays as flights were temporarily grounded and web applications failed for almost an hour Thursday afternoon.

“Delta IT teams are working diligently to address a technology issue impacting some of our systems,” the Delta News Hub said in a statement at about 5:30 p.m. “We have issued a Delta groundstop as we work to bring systems back up as quickly as possible.
