  James Cotter, left, and Andrew Ward of Integrated Logic wait to check in for a flight to Bethel as an Alaska Airlines computer problem delayed flights across its 64-airport network on the West Coast and in Mexico and Canada Monday, Oct. 8, 2012 at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. The duo learned of the problem early and arrived with their work equipment at 9 a.m. for a 12:20 p.m. flight. "We got here early thinking it might help, but it didn't help," said Ward. The airline began to resolve the computer issues midday Alaska time, but had to cope with a backlog of travelers from several flights. (AP Photo/Anchorage Daily News, Erik Hill)
