Last week, several airlines had reported issues with Sabre Corp's flight reservation and booking system due to which passengers had difficulty accessing flight check-in systems.

Travelers flying on Monday should check directly with their airline for up-to-date information regarding the status of their flight.

Delta said in a statement that some of its connecting flights were impacted.

More than 879 flights were delayed and 43 cancelled, according to Flight Aware's Misery Map. The airline anticipates scattered delays. American Airlines said some of its regional carries also use AeroData.
