Travel at airports affected by the glitch resumed normal operations by Saturday evening after tens of thousands of passengers were affected by flights up and down the Atlantic Coast being canceled or delayed.

In a post on Facebook, the FAA said it had disabled the new features added from the upgrade until it completes its investigation.
