A power outage at a data center grounded and delayed JetBlue Airways flights across the country Thursday.

"We're experiencing intermittent network issues due to a data center power outage," according to a mid-morning Twitter post by the airline. "We're working to resolve & should be restored shortly."

The outage was at a Verizon data center, according to JetBlue, which reported at 1:50 p.m. that the problem had been fixed and systems were being restored.

By 2:50 p.m., the airlines reservation system was back online, but some flights were expected to be delayed or canceled altogether.
