Several major airline sites were temporarily down on Monday due to an issue with the Google software that provides price and flight information for those sites.

American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines websites displayed error messages when users searched for flights on Monday afternoon but operated normally after about two hours.

A spokesman for Google had confirmed that the company was working on a solution to the problem.

“ and the Fly Delta app are functioning normally after an issue this afternoon that made it difficult for customers to purchase flights through, the Fly Delta app and our reservations call center,” it said in a statement from Delta. “The problem was caused by the failure of technology provided to Delta and several airlines by Google. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused.”
