It looks like AA, UA and DL all are down. I am assuming these are DNS attacks. Does anybody in the know have any more info? Between this and the weather the phone lines must be jammed!

Why would they get attacked? Am I missing something here?

I bet this is related to all of that Wikileaks stuff going on. They've been attacking sites left and right lately. I can not think of any other reason that suddenly multiple websites belonging to major airlines would go down.

I believe with every site they have attacked, they have announced that they attacked it and given a "reason" for it. They have to my knowledge not randomly hit sites like airlines. I think its more likely this is unrelated. Will be very curious to see who it turns out is responsible.

Yes, I did hear from someone that Cornerstone and the FIDS system was down and OPS was relying totally on FSM but I didn't think that it was related to this at all...hmm

Both AA and United were down last night, which made my super sensitive boss pissy when he wanted to check-in early. Let me just say it wasn't a pretty e-mail war after a horrid Monday for us both................

Amazon.com has so much excess server capacity that they tend to rent out their servers to an array of different companies. Could this be the case? It would then be definitely related to WikiLeaks.

We know it's not Amtrak, as that would happen a day behind schedule.

Twitter and thousands of other substantial sites would be down too, if that were the case, so probably not.

Haha, nice! This cracks me up! :P So true though somehow. They are slowly improving in the northeast I think.

It's not excess server capacity -- it's an entire business: Amazon Web Services.

And none of the airlines use it, so no, not an issue here.

I know I am going to get a cold shoulder here, but my company is dropping our LGA Shuttle contracts in favor of Acela. I will always love flying, but Amtrak is much more convenient.
