Issues with iPads Ground American Airlines Flights

Whoops! In 2013, American Airlines completely transitioned to an “Electronic Flight Bag” program, whereby pilots receive iPads with all flight manuals pre-loaded, effectively eliminating the need to carry over 3,000 pages of documents onto each flight. They were the first in the industry to do so and the transition began in 2012.

It looks like some of those iPads are currently having issues causing pilots to have trouble retrieving flight plans. American Airlines has confirmed that flights are grounded because of the software issues via Twitter.

The AA site is showing delays across flights from different hubs, though they have not confirmed which ones are impacted from the iPad issue. Check your flight status if you’re flying with AA today!
