Thanks Black Cloud! Sage advice from one whom, I'm guessing, has never made a mistake! I'm suitably chastised and grovel, humbly, before you!
The fact still stands, that the powers that be, ICAO, IATA etc etc are still doing nothing but pay lip service to the growing pressures on airlines and airline staff alike. Have the salaries increased at Colgan since their much publicized accident?
Maybe conditions WILL start to improve as the shortage bites, but I'm certainly not holding my breath. And the dumbing down of flying by the likes of Michael O'Leary only degrades the profession further in the eyes of the public. We are just bus drivers, right?
