Airline Executives Join Forces With FAA to Provide Better Air Travel

Airline executives have reacted with a measured response to the technology outage at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) earlier this week, calling for Congress and the Biden administration to provide more staff and money to upgrade its systems. Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said the agency needs to be supported, while American Airlines CEO Robert Isom praised the FAA for temporarily barring planes from taking off while it fixed the system.

The airline executives have a vested interest in making sure the FAA can function properly, as the agency manages the nation’s airspace and hires air traffic controllers. Isom said investment is required to upgrade the FAA’s technology, adding it would cost billions of dollars and not be done overnight.

Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Sam Graves have both promised to look into the FAA outage and Rep. Rick Larsen said Democrats and Republicans can come together to help the FAA improve its technology. The FAA outage has highlighted the need for Congress and the Biden administration to provide more staff and money to upgrade the agency’s systems.

The airline executives have responded to the outage with a call for increased investment in the FAA, rather than criticism. This shows their commitment to working with the FAA to improve its systems, which will ultimately result in better air travel for everyone. As the FAA works to resolve its technology problems, the airline executives claim they are willing to help in any way they can.
