Yikes!

Every time I see a story involving planes and “software mistake” I get nervous:

A software mistake caused a Tui flight to take off heavier than expected as female passengers using the title “Miss” were classified as children, an investigation has found.

Oof! Thank goodness it didn’t cause a major incident. But it is interesting to consider the kind of issue that can be caused by a mistake in globalization.
