Great diversion for someone who can’t swallow the truth.

“Conspiracy theorist” was a term coined by the CIA back in the 1950’s. To label the American population that choose to question and criticize the ‘mainline narrative.’ AKA not willing to follow the rest of the sheep.

Are you former military? I’m guessing you are and that explains a lot. You have succumbed to the great brainwashing machine. There’s no turning back for ya now. Good luck.

Make sure you stay tuned to CNN and hopefully the Russian Navy off the Atlantic coast doesn’t keep you up at night.

This one's not long for the banning, who steps away from his regional posting just long enough to spout conspiracy drivel.

There's still room on the ignore list.

The signal to noise ratio is reduced by at least one order of magnitude.

Again, great diversion.

Your personal ignore list? Sorry that you’re so brainwashed you choose to ignore reality.

This is not going away any time soon. Whistle Blower complaints are made in the Federal Courts. Rules of Federal Court procedure apply with regards to evidence, cross examination, and perjury. The fact that the parties are in contract negotiations will be factored in by the judge.



Over the last three years, our law firm has handled thirty-eight whistle blower cases for aircraft maintenance employees at SWA and American Airlines, Inc.(AA or American), filed with the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) pursuant to Section 519 of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform act of the 21st Century, 49U.S.C.4212, commonly referred to as AIR21. Existing Federal protocols require OSHA to focus on employment discrimination issues present in the complaint, while the FAA is required to conduct an expedited investigation of the operational safety issue presented in the complaint.


The fact that there are 38 cases and at least some of them have survived motions to dismiss means that AA and SWA are going to trial over the issues in the complaint. There may be additional evidence such as ASAP reports or use of the applicable internal safety reporting systems.


Both companies are unionized so any assertions by the company that they did not engage in retaliation means that their actions would have to have been done under the discipline sections of the applicable contracts.



The burden of proof lies with the plaintiff, but thirty eight cases are a lot.

When encountered? Did you read the article or watch the news clip?

Most of these guys that came forward said they have contacted the FAA and/or NTSB investigators....

The law firm handling these cases has had to goad the FAA via letters to the DOT and Senators to get the FAA to move on the investigations.

Most maintenance managers are former military crew chiefs or just managers without so much as a mechanics certificate. They will say and do anything to make themselves look good. I wish I could convey how dysfunctional and low rent that part of the aviation community really is. The whole maintenance system is able to function because its designed to accommodate retarded twelve year olds as workers. Even "good" places are like working at a car wash. After wrenching for way too long, I know there's a big game of Russian roulette being played.
