June 29 Will Be Like Y2K for Airlines

America has never been a fan of frilly international standards, like the meter or the Kyoto Protocol, but for some reason the airline industry is switching flight plans for all domestic flights over to the international standard on June 29.

Make sure your gadgets have a full battery charges, just in case. [FAA via Consumerist]
