    I suppose $3,150 paid to the FAA to release 3 airliners that would have sat idle for a month at a cost of 60 million dollars is cheap! I think it's the principle of the thing. The Inspector would get paid with interest when the shut down ended. The so called fee is illegal and looks like the FAA was holding an airline hostage to be able to do business!

    Yes like all shut downs over the years they are nothing more then paid vacations. Sad!!!

    Russ I believe someone really screwed up here collecting a fee to supply an inspector. The government is sensitive to the appearance of a pay off! The Inspector involved got his pay anyway. So where did this money go! It gives the appearance that someone put it in their pocket!!!

    ... didn't hear of any safety issues being worked during the shutdown. Like you said Rich, no ADs were issued. Crash investigations even piled up.

    This was purely a certification task. Certification is supposed to be way down on the priority list. The other operators didn't get the same certification service during the shutdown. Nothing fair and equal about it. It gives the appearance of special treatment.

    Yep.....it sure gives the appearance doesn't it! I read that the other airlines were in the same boat but could not get the FAA to do anything. I Believe John Allen went to Southwest after he retired......looks like someone got a favor!!;);)

    Ed Jerska posted this about John Allen leaving AFS-1 and going to "a 121 carrier" John a typical puppet doing what he is told finally has his FAA pension and a fat job as Vice President of SOMETHING at a carrier. I should point out that he did not wait the required two years before joining. WHat the hell that is only for us low level schmoes

    Rest in Peace ED.......we are still using your stuff old buddy!!!!

    Maybe Obozo cornered the market on pocketed money! He's done a pretty good job with a missing $7 Trillion from various 'sources' so far.
