Update 11am: JetBlue says the computer issues have been resolved, but flight delays will persist throughout the day.

Due to computer issues, JetBlue is experiencing system-wide delays Friday morning. As an example, none of the morning JFK to LAX flights have departed yet, and delays are rising to over three hours. We will update this page as we get more information.

While most flights do indeed seem to be delayed, data from Planefinder shows that some flights are departing.
