Lufthansa boarding process hit by computer outage - airport staff

FRANKFURT, April 20 (Reuters) - Lufthansa is suffering computer problems preventing it from boarding passengers, staff at Frankfurt airport said on Thursday.

A gate agent in Frankfurt announced the airline was having “a computer system breakdown worldwide,” a Reuters reporter at the scene said.

Some North America carriers have in recent months had to ground flights as a result of computer glitches but such instances have been rare in Europe.
