Airline Flights Canceled By the 1,000's

So now all the sudden these airlines are canceling fligths to inspect their aircraft.

Is the Fed Gov going too far or have the airlines been flying unsafe planes?

You would think so if the situation might have an effect on you, but in the larger scheme of things these airline companies have been doing this for years and there isn't a more vulnerable place then when you're up in the sky and something mechanically ****s up. I don't mind them doing this.

Yeah, tell that to the people who bought their tickets already and having the airline tell you...."well we haven't been inspecting oru planes so we will now en masse".

I think it's safe to say that the airlines have taken a lot of liberty with flying marginal planes for a while. It's about time they called these MF'ers to the carpet. I'm on a plane at least 2x per week, so this is good for me.

Oh, I thought this was related to the heavy snow storms in the north and severe weather in the south and storms in the midwest.

cost of doing business just went up. Teleconf works too.

think outside the box, entirely too much business travel is un-necessary.

I agree. People travel way too much for nothing. This is the old people's mentality though.

I work with a lot of them who still want you at your desk by 8, 1 exact hour for lunch and you don't leave until 5.

Nevermind the new technologies that make it cheaper for you to do more faster!

sales types, schmuzing/wining dining customer. Budget to spend.....I won't get it if I don't use it, my value in company is measured by this. Results should be measured differently.

America could be much more efficient and the airllines would adapt, less planes, less delays, less jet fuel used etc.

Again, you tell your boss that (when he insists otherwise) and let me know how that works out for you.

Doesn't really affect me either way, I seldom have to travel for anything but personal reasons.

Not gonna worry about it, haven't been on a plane since 2002. Don't plan on it either.

I really don't have sympathy for travelers that get "inconvenienced" they know what they are getting into when they go to the airport.

oh. I wouldn't work for someone that put me in that position.

When you travel a lot and you're never inconvenienced suddenly becoming inconvenienced is a big deal.

Nobody goes to the airport expecting to be inconvenienced. I travel a lot and I'm rarely inconvenienced. I just avoid the giant shit carriers. If Southwest and Midwest don't go there I'm probably not either.

Or, when you rarely ever fly and get inconvenienced for a family vacation. THAT would PISS ME OFF!!!
