The MELs are stacking up...
What are MELs?
Minimum equipment lists. Things/systems break on aircraft to the point of something constantly being broken. As opposed to downing the aircraft every time something minor breaks, airlines have minimum equipment lists approved by the manufacturer allowing operation with equipment inop. Some come with limitations, like unable to fly above FL350 with he yaw damper inop or something along those lines.
