Judge Rules United Airlines May Relax Safety Inspections

US Press News - Judge Rules United Airlines May Relax Safety Inspections
A federal judge ruled Tuesday in Chicago that United Airlines (UAL) may temporarily postpone safety inspections on any plane that carries more than 83 passengers. Industry analysts say the move will help the company in its ongoing contract negotiations with the mechanics' and machinists' union.

Note to the Weary Traveller: Might want to steer clear of United. Oh my favorite quote from the article:
"If a plane makes it from say, Chicago to Orlando then you know the plane is in good shape. It certainly should be able to turn around make the return trip. The last trip proved it."

Right, cause my car has never broken down on the way back from somewhere. Gah. People make my head hurt.

Can you guess what United named their "Value" priced airline service (to compete with Southwest and JetBlue?)

----TED!

That's right, Freaking TED. Their big "hook?" As much Free Lemonade as you can drink! What could be more funny than 150 people with full bladders fighting over 2 bathrooms for 4 hours.....

Free Lemonade! BRILLIANT!!!!

I tend to fly other airlines...

JOY! Images of Stimpy, anyone? Remember Stimpy? Although Ren's thoughts would run about so:

More reasons to stay the fuck in my car and take it up the ass on gas prices. Avoid terrorist attacks and poor airplane maintenance! Who gives a fuck about accountability anyway?
