The next time an airline steward asks you to turn your iPad off, don’t moan that you’re about to beat your top score in Candy Crush.

This is why you have to turn off electronic equipment on a plane

An iPad glitch forced 24 flights out of the air recently (don’t worry, they didn’t crash – they were just grounded by the pilots).

American Airlines said their flights were experiencing problems due to a problem with some of the software on the pilots’ iPads.

One passenger told Quartz: ‘The pilot came on and said that his first mate’s iPad powered down unexpectedly, and his had too, and that the entire 737 fleet on American had experienced the same behaviour.’

He said the pilot seemed shocked by the incident.

Andrea Huguely, American Airlines director of corporate communications, told USA Today: ‘In some cases, the flight has had to return to the gate to access a Wi-Fi connection to fix the issue.’

Passengers on the grounded flights were told they were free to exit the planes while the problem was sorted out, and those who did had alternative routes arranged for them.

Pilots with American Airlines carry virtual flight manuals on iPads while flying.

The airline made the digital switch in order to save fuel as weight would be drastically reduced if pilots did not have to have the 3,000 page manual in print.
