you can go online to the PBS website and view the excellent Frontline segment that AR is referring to..duty time for a flight crew is calculated once the aircraft door is shut and the jetway pulled and not the waiting time in the terminal thus most flight crews have very long actual days which lends to fatigue

this was a perfect opportunity to be proactive with all the keystakeholders having input..instead we usually only see action (and televised hearings) when there is an incident

Norm..the TEA Party may have started out with those lofty intentions but their agenda has taken on dark clouds and entered into the states rights arena and some very serious racial implications from the many factions of their leadership
