Back and forth press releases from US Airways and the USAPA regarding an incident last month when a captain refused to operate a flight from PHL to Europe due to safety concerns. We talk about the idiot who brought a LOADED RIFLE as checked baggage… the results weren’t good for the ticket agent. The FAA losing 30 million dollars per day in lost taxes and fees, and more!

Feedback from Dan and Kevin.
