Airplanes grounded by app glitch

Very interesting news that American Airlines flights were delayed when there was an iPad glitch and an app stopped working. AA went paperless to save on fuel in 2013, so there were no backup options. The app allows co/pilots to view flightplans. No flightplans=no flights. Digital information can be problematic. I'm personally glad this happened before they were airborne.
