American Airlines Transitions 8000+ Flight Bags to iPads

american-airlinesHot on the heels of JetBlue’s iPad announcement, American Airlines has now become the first major commercial airline in the world to completely replace pilot’s flight bags with iPads.

The FAA has approved American Airlines pilots to use their iPads in all phases of the flight across their entire fleet–these include the Boeing 777, 757, 767, 737 and the MD-80.

They have currently phased out over 24 million pages of documents already.
