Their answer is a bullsh*t cover your ass answer. The spokesman the other day who said it was American Airlines fault is probably in the unemployment line right now. How come this happened twice in one week on two different AA planes and is not happening on any other airline nor ever in recent history? Knock off the BS. You installed the seats wrong.

dcigary: I'm pretty sure that a bracket that malfunctions when sticky liquids are spilled on it can be classified under the "Design Flaw" category....


I don't have a degree in mechanical engineering but in my experience when you spill sticky liquids on most things they would tend to jam up, and if anything not come unlocked.

These are jet aircraft and there is typically extensive paperwork including an audit trail on pretty much everything. Who is using the same locks (800+ aircraft operated and operated by 4 of the major carriers) and have they had an issue? Are the locks on backwards? Who installed the locks, were they airline mechanics or foreigners as the union is stating? These are not difficult questions to answer, throwing up these smoke-and-mirror excuses is a diversion at best.

The media should be asking these questions and either reporting the answers or that AA is either refusing to answer or is unsure (incompetent), rather than reporting these fluff pieces that are a waste of time.

And i would like to point out how easy it is to hold 6 oz of drink in a 6.2 oz handle-less cup as you fly through wind storms while traveling at 500mph

Maybe you should consult another map.

AugieDoggyDaddy: Sombody please help me understand this.

Late Thursday, American said the loose seats causing delays and cancellations this week were not the result of human or mechanical failure, as the airline once suspected.

If it's not human failure and it's not mechanical failure, what kind of failure is it?


Software failure. A trouble ticket was open, and the developers are working on a patch. What more do you want?

The 40 year old seats are designed to hold 200 lb Americans, not 300 lb Americans.

The kind caused by worn pins on the mechanical device that isn't verified as being securely locked by the stupid humans that are using it?

Looks like American Airlines doesn't clean their planes like they should.

I'm guessing it's a maintenance issue. If it were a design flaw this would be happening on more airlines than just AA
