Re: Who Pays For Healthcare - Insurance Company or Employers?

Depends. Could very well be the employer depending on the plan. I know a medium sized company which took millions in charges as they had several employees during a single year that rack up massive medical charges. The event wrecked things pretty badly for subsequent years.

AF placed its A380 order way back in summer of 2000, but did not get its first frame till 2009 with all the Airbus delivery delays. Fast forward to 2019, the aviation world and manner the mark...
