He’s Done it Again



WWVB slices and dices the airline industry (along with the FAA) in his methodical manner.

AUGUST IS NATIONAL TRAPPED ON THE TARMAC MONTH

What we have here is: Airline marketing departments pick departure times, completely and intentionally ignoring airport capacity. They schedule arrivals with no regard to the load at the destination airport. To add insult to injury, the Airline accepts no accountability for missing their scheduled departure; if the system did have a departure gap for them at the scheduled time, and they push off the gate thirty minutes late and miss that gap, it's not the airline's fault. Just ask them. It's not a failure to communicate; it's an intentional, cynical business model.“

And in case you missed yesterday’s post -- PATCO, NATCA, NEXTGEN; SOLDIERS OR ARTIST-CRAFTSMEN? -- it was just as good.

(I didn’t know that bit about Rudy Giuliani . Did you ?)

Come on folks...get the Flick.
