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.

Most likely it can’t be done that way. Otherwise they would have done that in the current inspection process. Instead didnt they move the planes to where the inspectors were? They probably need tons of union mandated equipment. A simple ruler wouldn’t justify the enormous rates they charge.

Ummmmm - the airline didn't think they were dealing with a infinitely powerful group of insane Obsessive-Compulsive nutballs who would pull a stunt like this just to show everyone that they can.

Oops!
