Blog Editor’s Note: This report adds KLM, 777’s and Honeywell’s name to the mix on this issue. We recommend you check out the original Ars Technica post and read the very Interesting comments section. It is as informative as the post itself.  

We also have seen a report that a New York City government network was impacted by old equipment not updated to accommodate the rollover.  More on that soon.

Somebody forgot to upgrade: Flights delayed, cancelled by GPS rollover

Date bug on unpatched Honeywell gear likely cause of 777, 787 flight cancellations.
