Mar. 3—The Hawaii Department of Transportation is warning passengers that issues with the baggage handling systems at several ticketing lobbies at Terminal 2 at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport could cause delays.
Passengers who have outgoing flights with the following carriers at the following lobbies should seek updates:

The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau sent out a notice about the potential delays to its partners today. By mid-morning, there had been one canceled flight and 50 flight delays at the Honolulu Airport, according to FlightAware.
