Mary Schiavo Speaks on PBS about Airline Safety
On December 28, 2010, PBS re-aired their FRONTLINE investigative report entitled Flying Cheap with interviews from Mary Schiavo, an aviation attorney with Motley Rice and the former U.S. Department of Transportation Inspector General, on the controversy and safety concerns involving major airlines that outsource flights to smaller, regional carriers. This investigation highlights Continental Flight 3407, a fatal plane crash that occurred in Buffalo, NY on February 12, 2009. It also details similar incidents that may point to an evolving airline industry willing to sacrifice passenger safety for profits.
