saw the 60 min interview. Practiced responses from Allegiant. No shock.

I'm shocked.

No f'ing thx.

Skidding across the atmosphere has enough risks inherent. I don't need another jack wagon company trying to specifically cut corners.

Dying ain't much of a living boy.

But I saved so much money!

After Air Canada’s
two recent near tragedies I would think twice before flying them.

Was it one of theirs that came within a few feet of landing on a taxiway full of loaded planes? Or was that the one that almost flew into Mt. Wilson you were telling me about (I don't think that one made the mainstream?)

The Air Canada crews were probably staging a work walkout at the time.

I think that was EVA Air, a couple of years ago?

The worst of the Air Canadas was when the goobers came within 27' of landing
on 4 fully loaded planes on the taxiway at SFO. It would have been the worst
disaster in aviation history. TWENTY SEVEN FEET! If you've ever been
in the driver's seat while landing at a major airport at night you would
know how unbelievable this is to comprehend. The runway has a lighted
centerline, lighted edges, lights denoting the threshold, and most of all
'The Rabbit' - a strobe light that leads you to the bloody runway from a
half mile out. Stevie Wonder could follow that thing!

Yes, the EVA Air event was almost equally egregious. Why clowns like that
are allowed access to US airspace is a crime against humanity.
