The July 1 deadline for the US airline industry came and went, and not much happened. “We’re not aware of any disruptions specifically related to 5G over the weekend,” wrote Ian Petchenik, director of communications for Flightradar24, on Monday. Mike Dano writes via Light Reading: Petchenik noted the flight-tracking company does not specifically collect data on the types of issues that delay flights. Regardless, the situation is remarkable considering warnings of “major disruptions,” “chaos” and the possibility that “the nation’s commerce will grind to a halt” if 5G gets too close to airplanes in the US. Broadly, the high-stakes standoff between the US wireless industry and the airline industry — which kicked into high gear just over a year ago — appears to be something that both sides now mostly want to forget.
