    It's good to know that the organization that monitors air safety is in bed the airlines.

    This came up a month ago when the Southwest inspection thing first broke.

    Hope you're not flying American through D/FW today. The FAA has grounded 500 flights because the airline couldn't get all their MD-80s inspected in the two weeks the FAA gave them.

    One of our guys got stranded in San Antonio after the Final Four when his flight was cancelled.

    I'm stuck, too, hoping to leave today at 5:30 p.m., instead of 9:20 a.m. as originally scheduled.

    Is it any wonder the airlines have a lower approval rating than Bush and Cheney? On the other hand, I guess we've all been rather fortunate that we haven't seen a higher number of crashes and real emergencies because of these problems.

    We haven't seen them because the "problems" that are grounding the planes aren't going to cause the planes to crash.

    When it comes to customer service, the airlines are the least sympathetic. By miles.

    Wondering if American will hook me up with a whole other airline for my flight on Saturday. Just don't see them getting a handle on this shit by then.
