It's lucky that Airbus doesn't use stability and control augmentation systems in their....... Oh wait.
Yeah but theirs don't crash because people don't have basic airmansh...oh wait.
But at least Airbus makes sure that pilots have a detailed understanding of how the flight control software works....oh wait
Too much time has passed between the last incident and now, public care level zero.

Def not crazy.

Although this would make her the exception to the rule that somewhere around 1 out of every 1 self-published authors are diagnosably nuttier than Chinese chicken salad.
My grandpa spent a lot of money self publishing a few books that quite literally no one bought. One of them was a collection of spam letters and chain letters he had received over the years. Another was him plagiarizing one of my Jane's books on aircraft(he was a helicopter mechanic back in the day). The weirdest one was one where he wrote in the third person talking about a "guy", which was obviously him talking about himself, rambling on and explaining things that had happened in his life and how he got caught cheating by his wife(grandma) back in the 80s. Some of them are still on Amazon even though he's dead. Of course, he left himself glowing reviews under a pseudonym.

Forget nuts, he was just bat• crazy.

Meh. Some people have short memories. Some few have long memories. The ones with long memories tend live longer and not to get screwed-over and over and over again by stock brokers, and tv preachers, and other assorted purveyors of snake oil.

That's because ink-on-paper has centuries of history and development and is enveloped in intellectual and economic wisdom.
The internet?... ah... nope, not quite there yet, and for structural reasons probably never will be. Good Luck, Humanity!

But still, how quaint! You'd like an editor... in 2019! Bwahahahahahahaha!

Flew on an A321 out to Vegas yesterday. For the first time, I was actually more comfortable being on a Bus. Boeing done screwed up when even I feel better with the plastic French crap.
I've flown on 737s as a passenger more often then any other airline type with a 100% success rate. The Max's are grounded, not sure why you'd be nervous now.

It begins. Saudi airline Flyadeal had a 50 plane commitment with Boeing, and has just cancelled that order and is going with an all Airbus fleet and places an order for 30 A320neo’s.

And now SWA gets a screamin' deal on their next batch of planes which have already been manufactured, and Boeing just needs to clear off the property. They're not switching.

So he called in sick to run his side business and now wants to tie his crazy ship to Karlene's. I like where that's headed.
I don't know anything about the specifics of this case, and am not making any statement regarding this case specifically. With that said, I do know the typical boilerplate of corporate arbitration clauses. Saying: '...a "neutral, third-party arbitrator upheld" his firing,' does to the words proceeding that statement much what "but..." does to the words preceding that conjunction.

In most, if not all, corporate arbitration arrangements, the arbitrator is paid by the company. That fact alone makes a truly neutral and disinterested stance on the part of the arbitrator virtually impossible.

This is a good post. Entirely correct. I'll still give you dollars to bit coins that this lady is nuttier than squirrel turds, and a cannon so loose that, left untended, it could very well sink a ship. Or at least crash one.

Lol. Probably... I honestly don't even know what her case regards.

Yeah, that’s not how arbitration works in ALPA contracts.
