United airlines doesn't seem very united this week after they fired 13 flight crew who refused to fly a plane that had the words Bye Bye! and a face scratched on the rear of the tail structure. The crew claimed that the airline wouldn't do a proper security inspection and they feared for a possible bomb threat or similar.
The crew were all very experienced, you'd think it would be common sense to take their views seriously, after all they and the poor long suffering public are the ones actually on the bloody aircraft.
As usual it seems safety takes a back seat to getting the flight's off the ground on time, sadly it's often a recipe for disaster.
