Southwest is investigating the issue and said the two problems didn't appear to be related.
Operations had resumed by midafternoon Tuesday.
Southwest Airlines canceled 500 flights, 15% of its schedule, Tuesday as it struggled with connectivity issues, a day after technical problem with a weather data supplier delayed hundreds of flights.
The Federal Aviation Administration briefly issued a nationwide ground stop for Southwest, which prevents its flights from taking off to avoid overwhelming destinations.

More than 1,690 Southwest flights were delayed on Tuesday, close to half of the carrier's schedule, according to flight tracking site FlightAware. The airline said operations were returning to normal by Tuesday afternoon.
Southwest said it is investigating the issue and doesn't have reason to believe it's connected to Monday's problem.

Denver International Airport earlier tweeted that Southwest was having a "network connectivity issue" and warned travelers that flight delays are likely.

On Monday, 1,541 Southwest flights, about 41% of its schedule, were delayed, according to FlightAware.

The airline said that its operations on were disrupted Monday evening after its "third-party weather provider experienced intermittent performance issues" but told employees earlier Tuesday that it was in "relatively good shape" as operations resumed.
The issue occurred just as airlines like Southwest are flying an increasing number of travelers as demand rebounds from the coronavirus pandemic.

Carriers are grappling with a surge in customers along with employee reductions after they offered buyouts and other packages to cut costs in the pandemic. Southwest, Delta Air Lines and American Airlines, for example, have warned travelers about long hold times for customer service and encouraged them to use self-service options.

While Southwest's issue Tuesday appeared to have only briefly impacted its systems, longer-lasting technology issues or outages can be costly. Delta estimated an August 2016 data center outage that led to about 2,300 cancelations over three days cost it about $150 million in pretax income that quarter.

Attached is the relevant audio editted by yours truly of Flight 1730 ATC audio .
Enjoy and comment!

A Delta employee is in custody Saturday morning after allegedly causing a ruckus during one of the airline’s flights Friday night to Atlanta, where he said out loud that "he would take the plane down," Oklahoma City Police tell Fox News.

The incident forced the pilot to divert the aircraft to Oklahoma City following its departure from Los Angeles, flight records show. The man behind the chaos – an off-duty Delta employee in his late 20s – received medical attention after being removed from the plane and the FBI is now taking over the investigation, according to Oklahoma City Police.

"Thanks to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 1730 (LAX to ATL) who assisted in detaining an unruly passenger as the flight diverted to Oklahoma City (OKC)," Delta said in a statement. "The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement."
