American Airlines Inc. has a fleet of aging airplanes and a hard decision to make.
Every day it flies an aging McDonnell Douglas MD-80 is another day that it burns 20 percent to 30 percent more fuel than it would use with today’s replacement airplane, the Boeing 737-800.
“There’s no question, from a purely operational point of view, American should be replacing those airplanes – fuel emissions, noise, maintenance,” said aviation consultant Scott Hamilton, who focuses on aircraft manufacturers Boeing Co. and Airbus.
A 21-year-old Texas woman is suing American Airlines for allegedly not protecting her from a man who masturbated near her on a recent flight.
The woman’s $200,000 lawsuit alleges that when she awoke on the flight to Los Angeles, she found the man masturbating and “a substantial amount of an extremely sticky substance in her hair.”
