A Triumph of Ideology Over Evidence If we take into account the remarkably degraded service, a modest reduction in price, and factor in the full costs to employees, customers and communities, any rational cost-benefit analysis must conclude that deregulation has been a failed experiment. Department of Justice dropped its lawsuit against the merger of American Airlines and U.
So maybe you saw the story: He snapped a picture and, as these things go nowadays, touched off a scandal. Or thought he did. As described in chapter four of my book, all long-haul flights carry augmented cockpit crews that work in shifts. At my airline, flights scheduled to be over eight hours long, but fewer than twelve, carry three pilots: We rotate; all pilots are in the cockpit during takeoff and landing, but each spends roughly a third of the en route portion on break.
On flights greater than twelve hours we bring four pilots: Either way, there are always at least two pilots in the cockpit at any point. Pilots on break retire either to a bunk room — squirreled away somewhere on, above, or below the main passenger deck — or to a designated first or business class seat, usually cordoned off with a curtain.
Flight attendants, too, take required breaks and have their own separate quarters or seats for resting. I would never have discovered these shows if not for my long-haul rest breaks.
In plenty of places around the world we encounter policies and procedures that fail to make sense. I carry them everywhere. I try and fail to reason with the screening supervisor. Nor is the obvious reality that even a blindfolded, one-armed passenger could improvise a potentially deadly weapon from any of a hundred things found in the typical cabin.
I spare him any deeper contemplations. Such as the fact that the successes of the September 11th hijackers had nothing to do with weapons, or even with airport security. What hardware the men used was irrelevant.
Sharpened sticks would have done the job nicely. No, none of that is worth getting into. And so the line is held up for a good four minutes, so that a tiny pair of scissors can be confiscated from an airline pilot. How many people, I wonder, in how many lines, go through this every day?
How much cumulative wasted time is that? Of course they do. And no sane person could argue otherwise. And this is part of the reason I have such little faith in humanity getting itself out of the various messes that its in.
And stakes-wise, airport security is nothing compared to, say, climate change or nuclear proliferation.
