Subject: RE: BS: Airline Nightmare.
Kendall, you are partly correct. the need to show a profit takes precedence and the results in less money being available in other areas resulting in less training,less committment to ones job, and the list goes on. Look at what happened last week,, when a crazed passenger was able to walk into the cockpit and disengage the auto pilot. So I suppose less money also means less security, It certainly means less service, also some disgruntled employees with a who gives a damn attitude. Although i Have been on some excellent flights where the service was super, but problems with scheduling etc could be due to less air traffic controllers or even overworked ones, which is very scary indeed.
