Love For Safety: American Airlines Pilots Reports ‘significant Spike’

American Airlines is checking a big increase in safety problems. This comes from a group of pilots who work for them. Ed Sicher, (Message from APA President) the head of the union, said this.

People are paying more attention to safety issues in all airlines. This happened because of things like parts going missing, planes having to land unexpectedly, and a door on a plane blowing out while flying in January.

The union got American Airlines’ top bosses to really listen. They’re paying close attention now. The bosses are showing they care about the problems raised. This is a good start, the union leader said.
