A Pitstop On The Information Super Highway

More Cancelled Flights, more FAA inspections

March 28th, 2008 Posted in Breaking News

Just a few weeks after the Southwest Airlines inspection debacle, and just a day after American Airlines cancelled a slew of flights for mandatory inspections, Delta Air Lines is now joining the herd by cancelling 325 flights between today and tomorrow. The cancellations will allow for inspections of wiring bundles in their fleet of MD-80s similar to the inspections AA is doing. I’m getting the feeling that we’re still just scratching the surface on this whole inspection deal. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone when congress drops the hammer on the FAA here in the near future and demands a rethinking into airworthiness inspection compliance and monitoring. Until then, be sure to check to see if your flight is running on time before you leave the house.
