Two follow ups to stories from earlier this week:
Although American Airlines disagrees with the findings, the National Transportation Safety Board is blaming an AA co-pilot for the November 2001 crash of an A300 in Queens. The report claims the co-pilot made several incorrect rudder movements that snapped the tail fin off the plane.
And it looks like Delta may avoid bankruptcy after all. A $600 million cash infusion from American Express and rumors of a deal with pilots have Delta staff hopeful that a chapter 11 filing will be necessary. We’ll likely know by the end of today.
