United Airlines System Issue Grounds Flights – Again – Wash/Rinse/Repeat
Another day, another “system issue” grounded several United Airlines flights over the past 24 hours. The issue appears to be resolved at this point, but it leaves us all wondering what this issue could be. With the highly available and scalable cloud enabled systems of today, why do these outages keep occurring? Is human error involved, or possibly something more sinister (i.e. cyber attacks)? The airlines are mum on the cause, but at some point we can expect congress to get involved is this trend continues. Provide your speculation/comments below on the cause of the airlines system issues.
