A computer outage at JFK airport created check-in delays and long lines Sunday into early Monday, NBC New York reported.
A Verizon server providing internet service in Terminal 7 experienced problems at around 4 p.m., said Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Neal Buccino. The outage required manual check-ins.
At one point Sunday evening, more than 1,000 passengers were waiting to check in. Other reports estimate this number grew to 1,500.
