The modern administrative state it’s just a return to oligarchy despite its grand promises and assertions that it is necessary for a modern world needed to be governed by a modern administrative state.
"had missing engine bushings" "improperly held struts holding the engine in place".
You would think that after their DC-10 catastrophe of 1979 they would have learned their lesson when it comes to engine attachment, at least.

As usual, just follow the money. All the airlines dump loads of money on their lobbyists to make sure the FAA minds their "place" and doesn't get too invasive. Just another reason this Government agency should have been privatized long ago.

1979 is ancient history for an American corporation. Institutional memory is very short. How many CEOs has AMR had since 1979?

It’s probably hard to believe, but flying AA was actually a pretty pleasant experience back then. One could be dropped of 20 minutes before the flight without worry, haha.
Have read the article and nowhere does it mention checklists in the cockpit, its to do with maintenance. Am I missing something.
Good point, another example of dialogue/threads that just go astray by getting distracted by a catchy post as is the case here. One of the effects of an unmoderated or lightly moderated site. No avoiding it as staying on topic requires a degree of mental discipline. Some like meandering posts, others not. I, like you, appear to prefer remaining in context.

I just retired after 36 years with AA. I've never seen a lack of checklist discipline in any cockpit. If a crewmember failed to use a checklist, there are avenues to report the behavior which are highly effective.

I can't imagine a pilot not using a Checklist. that is just stupid... History has shown not doing so can be very detrimental to your health and others....

That makes no sense. It's up to the Captain to manage the cockpit to make time for the important things, like checklists!
