Default Alaska Airlines still doesn't care about safety

You'd think that losing an entire aircraft with 88 people aboard due to
greed
and inadequate maintenance would have taught Alaska Airlines something,
but it
hasn't. Look at this latest example of ignoring safety:

But the FAA said it was safe to fly. And you haven't been outside Paris for
the past 10 years so how does it give you a problem?

The FAA approved the maintenance delays back in 2000, too. And look where that
led. Just because the FAA doesn't forbid something doesn't make it a good
idea. Alaska Airlines elected to cut corners out of a total lack of concern
for safety and pure greed, and apparently they are still doing it today.

And you haven't been outside Paris for the past 10 years so how does

Aviation safety is one of my interests. I don't limit my interest in safety to
situations that affect me personally; I worry about the safety of others as
well. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of people like that (especially in
management at Alaska Airlines).

But it's from The Government, so it must be good.

I think that was essentially what Alaska Airlines has claimed in both cases,
but the argument rings a bit hollow, especially to next of kin.

And just where was that, exactly?

Nor does it make it a bad idea.

And you know this how?

And you haven't been outside Paris for the past 10 years so how does

Essentially you have libeled Alaska Airlines; what do you have to back
up these accusations?

I notice you keep talking about "reports" that are neither named nor

Google is your friend. They are all available online, and they are quite
interesting if you like the topic of aviation safety.
