Re: Updated: Boeing to Consolidate 787 Production in South Carolina

Re: FI Fires ALL FAs, Replaced By Pilots.

Well we know they operate 757s. BUT say you have less then 50 people on board. Do you still need a FA? I mean there are some smaller airlines out there operating smaller aircraft that have no FA. So what if they just limit the # of pax so no FA is required.

Is that even feasible/legal?
