Sounds interesting, but the article is quite vague. Anyone knows what safety procedures the instructor was referring at?

Huh?

25 FEB 2006 Air-India fails IATA safety audit
Air-India has failed a safety audit conducted by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), though it does not mean its aircraft are unsafe to fly. It failed IATA's International Operations Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate renewal audit reportedly because it required adoption of certain training modules, especially in the face of its ordering 50 new aircraft from Boeing. An official said: "The withdrawal of the certification is temporary. We have already made arrangements to comply with the directives by March end following which we are sure to get the certificate back". (PTI)

And now this... wonder what is happening here

This whole article is a bit absurd.

Individuals do not file a case directly with the US Supreme Court in such matters. Either the article has this wrong, or this individual is a nut.

From the article

Quote:
"The Boeing legal team is handling this case." Boeing officials didn't respond to STOI's calls. Keyter was discharged by Boeing after 17 years as senior instructor pilot.

If AI are breaking FDL, they will get blacklisted in Europe. EK had the same problem.

It comes as a great opportunity that the Shiv Sena wanted to prevent the hiring of foreign pilots, even NRIs and on a temoirary basis..

Sounds like a lot of fuss over nothing to me. If there were genuine safety issues, AI would have been barred from US and European airspace by now.

The guy does come across as a nut that's more likely than not, being manipulated by the AI pilots union.

> So irked was he with the working of the airline that on March 7, 2006, he filed criminal charges against AI chairman, V Thulasidas and 22 Boeing officials in the US Supreme Court. <


With all due respect, this article seems bogus. You cannot file complaint in the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. Supreme Court is an appellate court and it only deals with cases on appeal regarding constitutional issues. If this Boeing person filed a criminal complaint, he has to go to a District Attorney who will then file a criminal complaint. Individuals cannot file criminal complaints. Individuals may bring a civil law suit. So right away... I question this article.

If you observe the development fo the Times of India the recent years, you will realize that this newspaper has developed into a "money-making popular press", using low-quality but selling journalism etc etc.. it is a pitty how the news sector is transforming in India (and the Hindustan Times is even worse). I rely on The Hindu (from Chennai, TexDravid Big grin ) . In other words... bogus seems appropriate
