In order to establish a clearer flight safety regulation rules, Taiwan's Consumer Protection association (Government controlled) has FINALLY decided that effective December 2002, timetables/flight schedules from airlineshave to show the plane information for the planned flight.
The plane information will include the age of the aircraft planned to fly, the age of the fleet type, the oldest fleet type, type of the aircraft.
For example: If China Airlines shows that a 744 is flying CI006 to Los Angeles, China Airlines will have to show the registration of the 744 that's planned to operate this flight, plus the over-all fleet age of 744, and the age of the oldest 744.
The association will also ask CAA to update the punctuality of every airline, major accident information, incident information.
They claims this will help consumers to decide which plane they're expected to fly.
The conclusion was made during the meeting involving CI611 crash, due to people's doubt on "elderly" jet.
The association also asked airlines SHOULD NOT bargain with the victims for the compensation.
