A visit to Southwest Airlines website Wednesday afternoon was turning up what the airline is calling a "waiting room" page where visitors weren't able to book flights.

The outage was leading to nationwide delays, ABC News and CBS News both reported.

A message on Southwest's website told visitors to not refresh browsers and that visitors would be automatically transferred to as soon as possible.

On the airline's official Twitter page, Southwest tweeted: "We are aware and investigating current issues with our systems. We will keep you posted as we have more information to share."

The airline also tweeted that it's "working hard on a fix" to the waiting room page problem.
