APG 139 – Ebola and the Airlines: Are Crews Safe?
Play

Is the Ebola virus outbreak under control? How will the airlines deal with this? A second healthcare worker has been diagnosed with the deadly virus, and she travelled on a Frontier flight over the weekend. Passengers and crew are being monitored.

The largest American flight attendants union says it wants airline passengers to return to stowing phones and other electronics during takeoffs and landings, but the group’s arguments didn’t seem to fly Friday in court. I’m afraid this is too late. Water under the bridge. Until we have an airplane crash directly connected to electronic device use, this won’t happen.

The reincarnation of PEOPLExpress announced that their cessation of service will continue indefinitely, at least until they can get FAA approval to continue operations as a Part 380 carrier.
