In another flurry of civil enforcement actions …..

Capital Cargo International
The FAA is proposing a $298,500 civil penalty against Capital Cargo International Airlines, for allegedly operating 8, B727 aircraft when the aircraft were not in compliance with maintenance regulations.
The FAA alleges that Capital Cargo permitted an unqualified mechanic to perform certain aircraft inspections and to sign airworthiness releases on the company’s aircraft. As a consequence, Capital Cargo operated the aircrafts on 509 flights in 2008 and 2009 while they were not in compliance with federal aviation regulations.


The DOT has entered into a consent order with Emirates Airlines with civil penalty of $100,000 involving violations of the Montreal Convention related to consumer monetary claims for damaged, loss of delayed luggage.
The Department found multiple instances where Emirates denied consumers reimbursement for lost items from checked baggage. Emirates incorrectly stated that limiting its liability in such manner was in accordance with the Montreal Convention. In addition, the page on Emirates’ website incorrectly stated Emirates legal liability for valuables damaged in transit.
Additionally, the department found Emirates provided consumers with delayed baggage limited or no compensation and that such compensation provided was a “courtesy” and incorrectly stated that limiting its liability for costs related to delayed baggage was in accordance with the Montreal Convention and airline industry standards.


The DOT has entered into a consent order with JetBlue Airways, for violations in internet advertising.
The Department found that during a period in early 2011, JetBlue displayed fare advertising on several websites that did not properly provide information on additional taxes and fees for consumers.

Interesting. I was hoping this was more fines for commercial airlines not scrutinizing their cargo.

I remember seeing a Capital 727 years ago @ DFW I think.
