American Airlines Saves $1.2 Million Annually By Eliminating Flight Bags

A really interesting article over at computerworld about the the American Airlines IT modernisation program. Quoting from the article:

Pilots will soon replace their flight bags with an electronic version that runs on an iPad. American estimates that eliminating the 35-lb bags from every cockpit will save the airline $1.2 million of fuel annually.

It’s not BYOD, but it’s getting there!
