“Until a long-term technical solution is developed and implemented and as long as 5G is deployed, we anticipate we’ll experience delays, diversions and cancellations that are well beyond our control,” Seymour said in a note to employees. “The entire U.S. airline industry is facing major disruption as new wireless technology is activated.”

AT&T (NYSE:T) said it had agreed to delay some 5G deployment on Wednesday, while Verizon (NYSE:VZ) has not yet commented.
