Not the level of clothing dignity I'd choose for myself or my family, but I am old-school.
Hardly appears obscene or offensive, and we've all seen worse.
It was operating as a Part 91 flight - not on any Part 135 cert. The aircraft was owned by a local LLC as a holding company for a family. It is a tragedy of terrible consequence, a blessing that no one was in the hangar. The Falcon 50 in the hangar is certainly bound to be damaged beyond economic re...Jump to post

Sounds minor but actually significant; Asiana was the world first airline to prohibit smoking on board.
They are now really chasing profits.
Sort of laughable. Outside of New York, Jetblue's market Presence is pretty limited, so it's not as if anyone would knock themselves out to "benefit" from the association.

The worst blood here is not on Boeing's hands - it is on the hands of the LionAir crew prior to the accident flight.

I remain interested in why the FR24 data stream stopped well before the aircraft went down.

As a child, we were taught in school that conversion to comprehensive use of the metric system was imminent, and certainly expected to be completed by 1970 (I started elementary school in 1965).

Yup, its contract negotiation time. Let's put out some bad press to pressure the company to give in to our demands. Typical union tactic. Nothing else to see here.

There is no rational equal protection argument here, nor is there any ethical issue, unless it can be shown that FAA inspectors are applying a less-stringent standard.
