Hackers my guess. Japan has no IT security.

That's really scary.

Why is it scary? It was merely the check-in and reservation systems, not actual airplane systems. Scary no, mendoukusai yes.

This is why you not only have backup, but a back-up plan. If it's that easy to cause chaos in a nation far too dependent on rigidity, Japan is an easy target for hackers and terrorists, etc. I'm not suggesting that's what this was, but it IS proof that a whole lot more needs to be done in preparation for certain computer system problems. I can just imagine that a whole lot of business travelers got in trouble at their companies, as well, despite it not being their fault.

@smithinjapan You're being sensible. Are you trying to get down voted?

That's really scary.

not really. It has been happening from time to time, ofcourse not usually reported by JT.

Not scary but frustrating. One of the drawbacks on depending on technology, when things fail they really do.

There's a baggage handling system failure going on at Helsinki airport last few days where they are asking people to travel with only hand baggage!!!!

iPad again? Still, I enjoy ANA flights more than other airlines.

They got hacked. They just don't want to admit it because getting hacked looks MUCH worse than a "malfunction." Travelers would be asking, "can the plane be hacked, too?"

That's some glitch.

Happens all the time in the US. Especially American Airlines.
