Well, the news just keeps getting worse for Pinnacle Air Group. The FAA is now slapping a fine on them due to numerous crew rest violations that occured in 08 and 09. The funny thing about these is notice that the date at the end of the period in question corresponds to the BUF crash?
While I don't think the fine is really financially significant, this is another black eye for the regional industry and will hurt them in that way more than anything monetarily. Although Pinnacle is near bankruptcy so they certainly didn't need this.
