A severed Sprint network cable led to delays Monday for Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air flights, including some at Redmond Airport, and cancellations of others.
Two severed fiber-optic cables brought down the airline’s ticketing system at about 7:30 a.m. Monday, according to a news release from Alaska — the parent company of Horizon Air, which flies from Redmond to Portland and to Seattle. The Internet service was restored about noon.
A spot check of Monday’s flights to and from Redmond showed three of six Portland flights delayed between five and 30 minutes, according to Alaska Airline’s website.
Seattle flights to and from Redmond had more problems, according to the website. Four of six experienced delays or were expected to, including two flights Monday night estimated to be delayed more than two hours.
