Alaska Airlines confirmed there was a brief outage in one of its systems.
The airline was answering customers on Twitter who said they can't print a passenger manifest and that a system had crashed.
The Airline replied on it's Twitter account that they're working "to have this outage addressed as soon as possible."
Alaska said there was no ETA for restoration, but said yeah it was back up about 30 minutes later.
Passengers also reported problems on American Airlines and Jet Blue, but tweets indicated their systems were back operating shortly as well.
Alaska said it affected "a number of airlines."
The airline later said it experienced a technical issue with its reservations vendor, Sabre Corp., that prevented Alaska Airlines agents from performing some functions around customer reservations and check-in.
Airlines around the country who use Sabre reported similar technical issues including American and Hawaiian.
The issue resulted in delays for 15 flights. The impact to those flights were between 5 and 15 minutes.
We are aware of the issues facing some of our customers. Recovery is in progress and will provide more information in real time.— Sabre (@Sabre_Corp) November 11, 2016
