Airline analyst sees progress and concerns in aftermath of Flight 3407

Feb 12, 2019

Ten years of passionate advocacy by the Families of the Victims of Flight 3407 has brought important safety changes to the regional airline industry. That's the view of transportation attorney Mary Schiavo, the former Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Transportation, who also holds some reservations. Schiavo says the flying public is not informed adequately when it comes to mechanical issues discovered at some carriers. "The public really has to trust the carrier whose name is on the door and sometimes they don't deserve it."
