We're Not the Most Incompetent!
The agencies in charge of our fabulous air travel system (FAA and TSA) as well as the airlines are celebrating not being the world's most incompetent aviation system today. They may lose your bags, let you on with illegal liquids, strand you on runways for hours and have near-misses on runways but, unlike the Indonesian authorities, they didn't find part of an airplane wing on a runway yesterday and have difficulty identifying its source. The FAA promptly downgraded Indonesia's safety rating and continued to go back to screwing over the unionized air traffic controllers and scheduling yet more flights in and out of O'Hare. [Boston.com]
