HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Delta had the best on-time record of the major carriers until now. The debacle is a wake-up call for the airline industry, according to Bloomberg News.
Southwest just had a similar problem in July. It has happened at American Airlines, too.
Bob Edwards was chief information officer for United until he was forced out after a computer crash in 2014. He now says the airlines haven't engineered their systems with the level of redundancy needed. Cost of this crash will be millions - based on what Southwest Airlines lost when it had a massive crash last month.
