US Airways said Thursday its computer system is returning to normal after a cut cable delayed about 100 flights.

The airline said that a fiber-optic cable was accidentally cut near one of its Phoenix data centers, affecting its flight dispatch and airport computer systems. US Airways said no flights were delayed for more than an hour because of the problem.

The carrier said its systems were coming back on line Thursday evening, but customers were advised to check with the airline about their flight's status.

US Airways has about 3,100 flights a day to destinations in the U.S., Canada and international cities.
