UPDATE 1-Websites of airlines, banks, tech companies down in widespread outage

(Adds details on outage, background)
    July 22 (Reuters) - Websites of several airlines, banks and
technology companies including Delta Air Lines  DAL.N , Costco
Wholesale Corp  COST.O  and American Express  AXP.N  were facing
outages on Thursday.
    This is the third such incident in a span of just two
months, after multiple outages hit social media, government and
news websites across the globe in June, with some reports
pointing to a glitch at U.S.-based cloud computing services
provider Fastly.
    Cloud services provider Akamai Technologies  AKAM.O  gave an
alert on an "Edge DNS" service incident, noting a "partial
outage" on its website and said it was investigating the issue. 
    "We are aware of an emerging issue with the Edge DNS
service," it said on its website.
    Reports by users showed 4,000 issues on Airbnb's  ABNB.O 
website, while about 1,800 Home Depot  HD.N  users reported
problems, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.
    Websites were not loading and displayed domain name system
(DNS) service errors.  
    DNS or Domain Name System is a service that translates
readable domain names to machine readable IP addresses,
connecting it to a server and delivering the requested page on
the user's phone or laptop.
