Description

Carley examines the case of former American Eagle pilot Michael LaGrotte, who was fired by the airline when he aborted a flight after noticing ice forming on the wings. American Eagle officials say LaGrotte should have piloted the plane to warmer air rather than turn around and land at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. Carley investigates LaGrotte's claim that American Eagle pushes its pilots to fly in unsafe conditions, and examines the fine line airlines must tread between safety and profits.
