Very interesting videos on US regional airlines & pilots...

Unread post by bimjim » Wed May 26, 2010

I watched these back-to-back in a half-hour on TV last night in a half-hour PBS show... VERY intense, and VERY interesting - especially the way Continental does it's hard-nosed businessman bit and - like AA - distills everything down to dollars and cents and talks about peoples' real lives in percentages and averages.

The FAA / DoT does not come out of it too clean, either!!
