More than 50 airports across Japan were the scenes of major chaos Tuesday, when national airline carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) experienced an outage on its check-in system for its flights.
According to Japan Times, the system went down at around 8:20 a.m. local time. The airline quickly posted a notice on its website apologising for delays and cancellations due to a “system malfunction.”
The system glitch affected all airports with ANA flights, with Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport — its main domestic hub — being hit the worst.
