HERE'S why you update your software: The Southwest Airlines Meltdown

:fail: :fail: :fail: :facepalm:
The basic upshot:
  • Have backups for systems
  • Upgrade when you need to
  • Don't introduce single points of failure
  • Don't let beancounters run your ops department into the ground because "you guys aren't making us money anyway" :vader:
Bunch of idiot rubes. :laugh:

I saw a lot of this in person. My Christmas Day flight did not happen as planned. It was absolute chaos.

I'm so glad our Turkey Day trip was canceled.
