IBM lures airline to Linux mainframe

Korean Air has installed Linux software on an IBM mainframe to run its scheduling and accounting jobs, the companies said Monday. For scheduling, a z900 mainframe is being used to coordinate the work of 3,000 pilots and flight attendants for the airline's 111 planes. And Korean Air has begun moving the software for its daily revenue accounting system to Linux on the mainframe. IBM's services division manages and operates the server, IBM said. The new work is included in IBM's existing contracts.
