Vienna Airport Says Glitch That Disrupted Dozens Of Flights Resolved (reuters.com) 17

On Sunday, Vienna Airport was at the receiving end of a number of flight delays and cancellations due to data transmission issues. On Monday, it announced that all the issues have been resolved. Reuters reports:"Austrian air traffic control has solved the issue," the airport said on its website early on Monday. "At the moment there are no delayed or canceled flights. We advise passengers to contact their airline." The automated transfer of flight planning data between air traffic control centers in Brussels and Vienna collapsed completely for a while on Sunday afternoon, said a spokesman for Austro Control, which monitors Austrian air space.

    If the "problem" was "resolved" how about linking to a story that actually describes the problem?

    This is slashdot. We want to read about computer things that break and how they get fixed, not get some PR person saying "It's all good now, come on over, the weather's clear." What's all good now? What broke? How do we learn from this so we don't have the same breakage. What did you learn from it so you don't experience breakage.

    This could be a great learning experience. Sadly the link above doesn't provide that.

    • they don't know yet what caused the problem. when i arrived at VIE yesterday, they had put thousands of bags from the baggage belts on the floor, sitting there unattended, while a voice over the speakers told passengers not to leave their bags alone. :-)

      Since it was in Austria, probably a dingo ate the router. Or kangaroos cut the cables. Or they were chewed by feral dropbears.
