China's Airlines will be OK : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

China has given its airline bosses the ultimate incentive to solve the "millennium bomb" computer problem by ordering them to take a flight on New Year's day 2000. "All the heads of the airlines have got to be in the air on January 1, 2000," said Zhao Bo, in charge of dealing with the problem at the Chinese ministry of information industries. "We have to make sure there are no problems in aviation."
