Computer woes ground United flights around nation, McCarran

United Airlines has grounded its flights nationwide because of a "computer problem," according to a McCarran International Airport spokesman.

Glenn Gardner said he did not have more details on the source of the problem, which appeared to happen this evening. United flights will not be leaving the airport until it's resolved.

He said the problem did not force two United flights scheduled to land at the airport this evening to stop prematurely at other airports.
