I agree its poor management, not within the airlines but within the government who is supposed to be monitoring this.

no surprise that the govt is poorly run though.

"Poor management," he said bluntly.

He's got that right. Suddenly the FAA is not taking "no" for an answer, and now we have a crisis. Planes are not going to fall out the sky, or anything. But they aren't going to fly, either, unless everything is according-to-Hoyle...

The Feds, embarassed by the SW Airlines debacle, over reacts and disrupts air travel world-wide.

If the airlines had 18 months to comply, they could have inspected one plane every day or every few days and there would have been no crisis.

They could have had an inspector standing by at a hub airport, just waiting for an MD-80 to pull in so it can be crossed off the list.

These fliers should be tickled pink.... oh what a relief from those carbon tracks. Algore lost out big-time and maybe this is just the way liberals can celebrate the upcoming feast of liberals ‘earth day’. We surely ought to be able to show a spike in climate's reaction. (partial sarcasm)

Why would one expect a nation that can’t even pull off an election is capable of sustaining an airline industry. As we degenerate towards socialism (and eventually protoplasm) I expect to see a return to outdoor toilets.

"If somebody's got a choice between being in a plane crash and being late, is there a choice?"

A choice between a .000001% chance of a plane crash and a 100% chance of being late is indeed a very real choice, which should be honestly evaluated.

UGH!!! Listen to this.... I am FUMING! —

As of 9/2/08, AA will cancel their only daily non-stop flight from Baltimore to San Juan, Puerto Rico (that’s the flight I always take home) and will also cancel their only daily non-stop from Washington-Dulles to San Juan — so therefore, us who live in the D.C. and Baltimore corridor will have to fly to Miami or NY-JFK in order to connect to go to San Juan — AND, IN ADDITION — today United Airlines proposed to cancel their only non-stop flight to San Juan from Washington-Dulles, so we don’t even have any options, as far as taking another airlines with a direct flight.

This will prompt me to travel less to the island.
