The concern (worry) that the airlines have is that C-Band 5G could mess with the radio altimeters that are vital for instrument landings in low visibility weather. The 5G frequencies, they say, are too close to the frequencies used by the altimeters.

What's odd is that this could have been easily tested. Why wasn't it? Why are the airlines waiting until just days before the 5G transmitters are turned on to make an issue of it? Wouldn't it have made much more sense to bring this up months ago?

AT & T and Verizon have pulled back on firring up the 5G transmitters, but it turns out they've already delayed it twice before. The airlines don't seem to be getting with the program.
