Re: Senate Again Debating CARES2 for Airlines and Airports

Speaking as a furloughed airline employee, the original PSP was really helpful and provided stability while we dealt with the whirlwind of covid. With that being said, the government dropped the ball on extending it in a timely manner, and we've been furloughed for going on 3 months now. A lot of pe...

Re: Does 737-700 require thrust reverser to be operational

At my airline the thrust reverser can be put on MEL and flight released in most cases.
