Air travel is expected to be back to normal today after a computer software glitch snarled flights at Chicago's airports and across the country. The problem began Tuesday afternoon at an FAA facility in Georgia that processes flight plans for the eastern half of the U.S.

The glitch affected flights nationwide and grounded dozens of jets at O'Hare and Midway airports. Some passengers waited nearly two hours for their flights.

By early evening, flight schedules were slowly returning to normal.

Not all airports in the U.S. were affected. You can see real time which airports are being affected at
