CNN: The 5G-airlines crisis was mostly averted. Here’s what happened – and what we still don’t know

And on Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration cleared a greater number of commercial airliners to fly in the situations where pilots consider possible 5G interference to be the most dangerous.
