They fear airlines are reducing safety for crew, travelers
I guess cutting costs is more critical than safety in the airlines industry.
What the bosses needed to do is cut their salaries in half. That should help
with cutting costs....
Today it is skimping on fuel load, tomorrow perhaps skimping on maintenance.
Pilots can also be pressured into taking off when all systems are not what they
are supposed to be. We haven't had an accident for awhile now, and I suppose
that is what it will take to stop this kind of thing, just to help the bottom
line. Airlines need to raise prices to account for fuel and other
costs along with a profit. There are too many planes in the air or waiting for
take-off and landing. Airfare is probably too cheap, and we travel too much.
