Reboot Your Plane Every 149 Hours

Some Airbus A350 airplanes have a software bug that requires a reboot every 149 hours. Insert your own "did you try rebooting it?" joke here.

Depending on the affected aeroplane systems or equipment, different consequences have been observed and reported by operators, from redundancy loss to complete loss on a specific function hosted on common remote data concentrator and core processing input/output modules. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to partial or total loss of some avionics systems or functions, possibly resulting in an unsafe condition.
