February 29 travel delays – Y2K reincarnated!
Amazing that some travellers on at least a couple of airlines have reported travel delays due to February 29 computer bugs. Check out these threads on the United and BMI forums. Northwest hasn’t escaped either but seems to only affect the flight status information.
If I was CIO of any of these airlines I’d expect some stiff questioning. It isn’t like February 29 sneaked up on us.
