Air Canada confirmed things were back online on Twitter Monday afternoon. Air Canada provides scheduled passenger service directly to 64 airports in Canada, 61 in the United States and 98 in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America.

According to reports from multiple airports, including Toronto and Calgary, Air Canada is now experiencing a network outage nationwide with its computer system across the country.

"Today's computer issues have had a wide impact on our customers and we apologize for any inconvenience", Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, said in the statement.

Most notably, he addressed the company's upcoming video service and the increasing importance of augmented reality (AR) to Apple. And yet, CNN's Dylan Byers, who interviewed Cue, asked why the NRA has a presence in the App Store and on Apple TV.

There were long lines reported at airports, including at Pearson International Airport, as well as in Vancouver, Montreal, and Calgary. "We thank customers for their patience".

The glitch led to long delays at YVR for passengers who either had to wait a long time or weren't able to board their flights.

In Toronto and elsewhere in Canada, the system issues came as travellers were heading out of town for March break. Some planes reportedly unloaded passengers.
