While high on marijuana, a computer operator at the main computer reservations centre of a major airline failed to load a crucial tape at a crucial time. The result was eight hours of “down” computer time, erased reservations, and a $19 million loss to the airlines. Commenting on the $19 million loss, an airline spokesman said: “That was an awfully expensive joint by anybody's standards.”
