American Airlines Flights Delayed By Crashing iPads

Dozens of American Airlines have suffered serious delays yesterday because the iPads by pilots, which are used for the flight suddenly crashed. An iPad app with navigation data and information on airport proved to be the culprit. According to Jeppesen, a subsidiary of Boeing and creator of the app, the problem was caused by a double folder in the database.

When loading a folder on the runway of the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport showed the new version of the directory to conflict with the old version and caused the crash. Pilots could solve the problem ultimately by removing the app, and then reinstall it. In total, 70 flights because of the crashing iPads have slowed, reports the website Re / code . American Airlines was the first airline that decided to replace the cumbersome and awkward flight manuals by a tablet, which is now the norm in the industry is becoming, as the late New York Times know.
