You would think logically that if FAA finds the pilots were poorly trained they would further investigate the airlines and take further actions.
Well, there is "poorly trained" and there is flying a perfectly well functioning B777 into a sea wall. But as you yourself stated, OZ
214, was the first major accident of Asiana. I have to imagine that as the investigation continues, FAA and the NTSB will enquire if there have been any changes to improve safety .... Asiana better have some answers.
But in answer to your initial question, no ... just because they are flying to the US, don't think there is an FAA seal of approval on the tail!
For example, I have family in HKG
, and I visit on occasion. With close to 100% LFs, I can never get on AC
flights, so I will only fly CX
is superb, and DL
is improving, but people always ask about UA
. I just laugh ... yeah the planes are kind of beat up, and yes the F/As are as old as my Grandma, but ... I am 100% certain, beyond a shadow of doubt that the aircraft is being flown safely.
For some odd reason, that is more important to me than AVOD, hot towels in Y and young pretty F/As.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!
