United Airlines Grounds All Flights Worldwide After Computer GlitchUnited Airlines, one of the largest aviation companies in America has issued a travel waiver this morning following the horrific Las Vegas shooting that happened on October1st 2017.



This emergency travel notice extends until October 6th, 217, which allows passengers with flights booked to or from Las Vegas between October 2nd and October 13th to reschedule their flights without a change fee.




The most of the travel waivers are issued by United Airlines are for weather-related crises, most recently for hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.




Though the issuing travel waivers because of acts of violence are less usual, they do happen. The travel waivers were issued previously for the terrorist attacks in Paris that left hundreds dead and the airport attack in Brussels.




A United Airlines spokesperson was not immediately obtainable to substantiate whether this is the first violence-provoked travel waiver from the carrier. American Airlines and Southwest Airlines were in the process of issuing their own official waivers which can alert the passengers.




Southwest Airlines said that the Southwest hearts are with everyone affected by the tragedy in Las Vegas.



While they are not currently experiencing any operational impact at McCarran, they are allowing customers travelling to and from Las Vegas on October 2nd to adjust their travel plans without additional costs.




It is noted that on October 1st 2017, when Route 91 Harvest, which is one of the most popular country music festivals on the Las Vegas Strip in the Neveda region, became the site of one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history on Sunday night.
