JetBlue Airways Corp., the carrier with the most domestic flights from New York's John F. Kennedy airport, said delays caused by a computer system failure affected service Friday.

About 60 flight delays were directly related to the computer issue, said Anders Lindstrom, a spokesman for New York-based JetBlue. Bad weather delayed other flights, he said.

FlightAware.com, an online tracking service, showed about 178 JetBlue flights, or a quarter of the carrier's daily total, delayed more than 15 minutes Friday.

"JetBlue experienced an IT system outage early this morning that has created delays in the system," Lindstrom said. "The system is now up and running and we are slowly returning to normal service."

Additional delays were the result of a "major storm in the northeast last night and ground delay programs in several airports today," including New York's LaGuardia Airport and New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport, he said via email.

JetBlue makes about 700 daily flights.

The failure occurred a day after United Airlines mistakenly sold an unknown number of tickets online for free after faulty data was put into its reservations system. The unit of United Continental Holdings Inc. is reviewing whether to honor the tickets.
