Every United Airlines flight in America was grounded for more than an hour Wednesday because of a computer issue, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The ground notice went out around 8:40 a.m. ET. It was lifted around 9:47 a.m. ET.

Here's the FAA's initial advisory:

Here's the message saying the ground notice was lifted:

Passengers and news outlets around the nation reported long lines and general frustration during the outage:

A flight took off from Chicago bound for Washington, D.C., at 8 a.m., according to United's website.

Lines started moving shortly after the all-clear was sent:

"We experienced a network connectivity issue this morning. We are working to resolve this and apologize to our customers for any inconvenience," United said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

In June, all United flights were grounded for about an hour over a dispatching issue.
