Passengers traveling on Southwest Airlines, USA Sunday are being told to expect long waits and lines at the airport because of a computer issue.

In a statement on their website the airline is asking passengers to arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to their scheduled flight time.

Southwest said the waits are due to connectivity issues with their airport technology system which is delaying passenger check-ins.
