“Kind of a bang” — American still in the flying casket business

“American Airlines still loves its MD-80s, an excellent reason to never fly American.”

I posted that just two days ago. And as if on cue, another American Airlines Flying Casket MD-80 pulled up lame today. Worse, it exhibited the exact symptoms that both Alaska 261 and my January 2000 flight experienced.

“…Passengers and crew heard “kind of a bang” and the plane lost cabin pressure.”

Eight of American’s nine daily flights from Dallas to Seattle and SFO are MD-83s. And these weasels charge you extra for baggage, too.

    1. This is a dramatization of the Flight 261 tragedy produced by National Geographic and Discovery Channel in Canada in 2003. Much of it covers what we already know, but the last 15 minutes or so are still worth watching.
