More trouble heading towards US Airways and United Airlines

http://www.cnn.com/2009/TRAVEL/10/14....fines/index.html?eref=igoogle_cnn

It is funny how US Airways blamed the problems on the difficulties of merging US and America West.
Merging or not.... if the plane is unsafe and not air-worthy, it should not fly. It should be as simple as that. Looks like US violated the FAA directives and still flew the unsafe planes.

Pretty small fines, pretty small fleets affected. Pretty small compared to some.

After 25 years in the industry, I don't think there is a single carrier that hasn't received a fine from the FAA. Not that its good!, but in perspective....its basically nothing.

The United one does seem less egregious, especially since they self reported it to the FAA.

Quoting CatIII (Reply 2):

Less egregious? The US issue is that they did not comply with AD's and the situations were potentially unsafe. The UA issue was a clearly unsafe issue.
