  1. @Gary

    Not sure what your point is with UAL’s board chairperson — as you note, Garvey is *former* head of the FAA — she left the FAA 16 years ago. I don’t think it’s neither fair nor accurate to imply that she is in charge of both policy and running an airline simultaneously.

    Weren’t you also advocating for the privatization of the FAA, which would have involved people running the airline being in charge of the aviation regulator?

  2. It should come as a surprise to nobody at all that the Gulf carriers don’t give a damn about human rights. When your government is based on monarchy and religion plays such a huge role in society, it’s no wonder that you’d be stuck in the 15th century and okay as using people as slaves. The ridiculous luxury of the Gulf states comes at a pretty heavy price.
