"W-I-N-K" Has some bad writers. Where is their proof that NWA grounded those planes. I don't think a South Florida TV stations knows what's going on with a Mid-West Airline company.

Can you prove that it is not true?

I doubt it.

It is not anyone's job to prove a rumor or false allegation not true, though some are forced to do so.

Is this a real television news department? If so, this wins the award for most incoherent or gramatically incorrect story I've seen on a news website (no I don't do enough online news reading for that to be meaningful)

Quote:
"I understand what they're doing," said Donna Imbery, a Cape Coral resident at Southwest Florid International,

Can someone tell me where Southwest Florid is? Budget problems and the state had to sell off the "a"?

Quote:
Substitute mechanics have had to deal with blown tires, on a plane, that landed in Detroit and another plane. That one had to make an emergency landing because of smoke in the cabin. Both incidents happened in Detroit.

Uh... Lets see the airline mechanics had to deal with blown tires on a plane? Imagine that. "...in Detroit and another plane. That one had to make an emergency landing...Both incidents happened in Detroit." Aside from being blatantly redundant (you already told me it happened in Detroit once), it is awkward sentance structure at its best [and this is comming from someone who has never excelled in my English classes].

Aside from that, on a factual how does "WINK" know that the airline is grounding planes if the airline isn't admitting it as they state in the first paragraph of the story?

The media is just starting to ignore NW management's BS and beginning to look at the facts for themselves. Praise God.

At one point before the mechanics went on strike there were a lot more than 3 planes out of service due to maintenance. So we can say there is an improvement if only three planes are out of service.
