More Computer Problems Take Down More Airlines

from the something-of-a-trend... dept

It seems like there's been something of a slightly scary trend lately of computer glitches completely grounding airlines. In May, a computer glitch grounded Delta flights. Just a few weeks ago Northwest Airlines was grounded due to a computer glitch. This weekend, both US Air and American were grounded by computer glitches. It seems more than a bit odd that so many airlines would have so many computer glitches that impact so much of their business in such a short time-frame. The two problems this weekend were due to an EDS malfunction, though it's unclear about the previous problems.
