When luddites have power..
Hey, I have a question and I know it's stupid. Does the FAA have any jurisdiction what-so-ever over rocket launches in and from China?
Hi, good morning. I wish to know if it is possible to write FAA B1 license exams after studying in a school in Nigeria, please. The school is recognized by ICAO
FIRE WORKS MOTARS ( BOMBS) IN THE ARE OF FLIGHT PATHS OF SMALL AIR PORTS . ACROSS THE NATION. NEEDS TO STOP PEOPLE CAN GET KILLED... THANK YOU SIR...
I just went through security at PDX and you guys really need to do some training with your agents. I was standing my ground requesting a pat down and one of your guards was incredibly rude about it. I stated my reasons were due to medical devices, he scoffed at this. I would be happy to go through any scanner if the FAA and your agents are willing to immediately replace a burned out sensor and transmitter or you can prove and get manufacturer guarantee that it won’t ruin my medical device. Here’s a video link, watch it, maybe work with device manufacturers.
I have a very simple solution for dealing with aggressive passengers. If a passenger gets aggressive towards the flight crew members, add them to the do-not-fly list. That should be the rule upon boarding an airplane.
AND WHY DON’T WE USE SAFER FUEL LIKE THE MILITARY DOES!
As I watch tonight’s episode of Air Disasters…I learn that BEFORE THE ONE HUNDRED PERCENT FATALITY of the Propair at Dorval…there were SIXTY EIGHT PRIOR REPORTED INCIDENTS OF BRAKE FAILURES….all potentially able to have PREVENTED this tragedy! SHAME ON YOU
Is it true? that #china is refusing 2sell the parts 2 refurbish the jet engines (needed4regular daily maintenance) due2 tradewars and or lockdown next level protocol in their working model of corruption. And if it is will the airlines b required2 start rerouting the purchasing to more reliable iron clad sources of manufacturers? Or will u let them fall into permanent disrepair and ground entire fleets after planes start dropping??
I have been transferring my American Express points to Air France Flying Blue and scheduling flights for over 10 years. But I have been unable to book a flight with my miles on either the Flying Blue or the Air France website, and also unable to reach anyone on either of their help lines. The "chat line" was down for a week and then came back, and reserved a flight. Then they emailed me that the flight was canceled. I looked it up on their website and they are still listing it. it is also still listed on Delta. Is Air France going out of business? if they do, what happens to my miles? American Express says they cannot get them back.
