Description

The Wall Street Journal looks at the reluctance of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to take any definitive action against Emery Worldwide Airlines Inc. until August 2001, in spite of "a stream of safety incidents and complaints from pilots dating from 1996." The story examines "broader questions about air-cargo oversight" and finds that "the air-cargo business has grown much faster than passenger traffic in recent years." The reporter looks at the rising concerns that "the FAA gives cargo regulation lower priority, assigning it fewer and sometimes less-experienced inspectors."
