Maybe I'm just not seeing things correctly but didn't the article say the bill's legislative sponsor was also an employee of the company seeking an exemption?

Am I the only one who thinks this smacks of conflict of interest?

They don't have flexible scheduling at the airlines. You bid your vacation the November before for the next calender year and this was the only way to get some flexibility to things. You would swap days off with other guys to help things out. Sometimes you would work holidays for the shift premium and give a family man the day off or you would work it out so you had a week off and could go somewhere. Couldn't give too many days up or they suspended the privledge. It was the only way you could work the oddball shifts with Tuesday and Wednesday off.

THE UNITED STATES AIRLINES ARE SOME OF THE WORSE TO FLY IN THE WORLD WHILE CHINA HAS SOME OF THE BEST; WHAT A TURNAROUND IN THE LAST 20 YEARS; IT SHOWS ECONOMIC PLANNING DOES WORK AS APPOSED TO THE STRICT MARKETPLACE ECONOMY.
