Dozens of JetBlue flights are slowly returning to normal Friday morning after a computer glitch triggered delays.

The carrier turned to Twitter to advise customers of what was going on.

JetBlue says a computer failure limited the airline's ability to dispatch planes.

The system was eventually restored but JetBlue says customers should expect delays throughout the day.

It's instructing passengers to check the JetBlue website for flight status updates.
