Check your runways

With the varied reasons for air mishaps, the latest of which was that PAL engine explosion, one disregarded cause could suddenly result in another accident – it may be a given but check your runways. Airport administrators, take note!

Runway maintenance is crucial ...

As stated in the recent “News & Developments” posting, if with automation where we thought of air travel as safe and which has now become a “question” – how much more would other overlooked factors such as runways?

I’m about to take another trip by month’s end, and with the airline that just had an engine explosion at that. Whoa! If there’s no clear explanation to it, if there’s no update to whatever reparable and preventive actions taken by PAL – as a “consumer”, what would you think? Was it just an isolated case?

Isolated case is “only” applicable if the entity is “continuously” doing something to improve its product, service, condition, or situation.

Billeting passengers in a good hotel is more of the result of a wrong than a burning desire to provide great customer experience.

The hope here is that for the concerned people not just to look at the plane factor or ground crew negligence or any potential pilot error, but to consider everything – including runways, birds, the changing magnetic field, a sudden firing of missiles, hacking, and all other distractions air travel could possibly encounter.

This effort should be “continuous” at all levels and for whatever route in every airline company in the world – never complacent.
