    killers.

    Pilot unions and flight-attendent unions have not been very successful in forcing better working condition and better pay for their members.

    Sadly, same-old, same-old when it comes to employers dealing with unions.

    There was a crash in Buffalo, NY caused partly by pilot error.  But the co-pilot lived with her parents in Washington state, had to 'dead head' 2-3 flights to get to NJ to fly the plane.

    The pilot wasn't as familiar with that type of plane, not too clear how much sleep HE got.  

    But in the end it was 49 people dead.  

    Just to squeeze more consessions from flight personnel.
