United Airlines flights were grounded nationwide for about an hour Wednesday morning due to a computer issue. Passengers reported getting handwritten tickets, blank computer screens and long lines.

United blamed on a bad router for the travel headaches, the LA Times reports.

The airline said in a tweet that it "experienced a network connectivity issue." The Federal Aviation Administration cleared United to fly again by 10 a.m. ET.

Passengers reported long lines at ticket counters around the country on social media:

United is the most delayed airline in the country, according to a FiveThirtyEight analysis in June.
