Lufthansa boarding process hit by computer outage - airport staff | Reuters

FRANKFURT Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) is suffering computer problems preventing it from boarding passengers, staff at Frankfurt airport said on Thursday.

A gate agent in Frankfurt announced the airline was having "a computer system breakdown worldwide," a Reuters reporter at the scene said.
