5G rollout in the US causes chaos in aviation
Airlines in the US have warned of serious problems as new 5G mobile services are rolled out. The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that certain frequencies of the new 5G networks could massively affect aircraft radio altimeters. Unlike in the US, Europe generally uses a 5G spectrum that is further away from the frequency bands used for radio altimeters.
Several major airlines have cancelled or changed routes of flights to and from the US due to safety concerns. Emirates, for example, has suspended flights to nine major hubs "until further notice".
