Here's a @PlaneFinder map of flights inbound to @flyLAXairport. Lots of circling & diversions thousands of miles away pic.twitter.com/qsKFriSIJJ

Arrivals continue to be accepted but departures are being held on ground. No ETA on when it will be lifted. Contact FAA/airlines for details

Is there any sort of backup system for ATC markis10? What actually happened here anyway?

The southern-most trace (with blue part by LAX and at the far right, at the turn) ... appears to have left LAX, then the one trace becomes two as paths diverge after turning back to LAX, then they too are circling.

Markis10, just out of interest - this looks like 2 go-arounds? Maybe on close approach when the ATC 'went down', headed east to re-group, then joined the 'holds' ? Could the blue trace over DFW indicate they went low, as if to land there, but changed mind?

I dont think its go-rounds, looks like they decided to divert and then mid divert go told they could go to LAX. Or they did a slap and dash (fuel top up).
