'Catastrophic' crisis? Airlines warn 5G technology might render aircrafts unusable

DW, 18 Jan 2022
Major US airlines are warning of an impending 'catastrophic' crisis when a new 5G service is deployed by telecom giants AT&T and Verizon on Wednesday. American Airlines, Delta, United, and Southwest Airlines all say the new technology might affect flight instruments and render many aircraft unusable. That could lead to the grounding of tens of thousands of flights. The telecoms firms say they've created buffer zones around airports - but carriers warn that it wont be enough.
