Want safe air travel
Union hours and more than one air traffic controller overnight.
No one person can do that job - are you expecting them to never go to the bathroom?

That is all.

2. I thought you were going to recommend more groping....
of six year olds.... :sarcasm:


Perhaps, just perhaps, our funding priorities (not to mention our policies) are totally whacked. :shrug:

3. I've always wanted safe air travel, but apparently Reagan didn't care. :-(
I think the policy and LACK of fair working conditions/hours/time off is what is responsible for these workers falling asleep. Every single one of those people suspended should be reinstated.

two person requirement in the tower at ALL TIMES.

5. Good idea but still no excuse to fall asleep on the job
No excuse.
However if all controllers were unionized I would have no problem at all with it.
