I have been reading these two threads regarding relatively minor occurrences that the media seem to have blown out of proportion. I was wondering if anybody had other examples of reckless reporting of aircraft incidents that have unfairly tarnished the image of the airline involved.
The threads... AI overun... and AC RTO... Definitely could have been worse, but not altogether unusual occurrences
