THE LARGEST FINE IN FAA HISTORY - SLAPPED ON AMERICAN AIRLINES.
For inspection and repair lapses that were flagged in April of 2008. With fines totaling 24.2 million dollars!
"Usually you can probably count on about 1/3 of the fine being reduced through negotiations and so on. But it's a pretty big chunk of change that American Airlines will be forced to pay over to the FAA, and rightfully so."
That was Airline Security Expert Charles Slepian, who spent some time this morning with Amy and Ed at KFBK.
The airline at the time of the findings disputed them - claiming the issues were minor and never endangered passengers - calling the actions of the FAA unwarranted.
