Exhausted jet pilots ‘are putting passengers at risk’
By Ray Massey, Transport Editor
Exhausted pilots who are bullied by their bosses to meet tight timetables are said to be putting passengers\' lives at risk.
An investigation has found that twice as many pilots are flying when dangerously tired than five years ago.
A separate survey by the British Airline Pilots\' Association revealed that four-fifths of pilots admitted they had been affected by fatigue while flying.
A spokesman for the association said the problem was split evenly between pilots of budget airlines and traditional carriers.
He added: "In the studies, there were as many fatigued British Airways pilots as there were from easyJet or Ryanair. It\'s not confined to pilots on long-haul or short haul. It\'s across the board."

Pilots disabled by poisoned air
A few years back Susan Michaelis, Tristan Loraine and John Hoyte were successful airline pilots, earning up to £100,000 a year. Last Monday, with health and livelihood destroyed, they joined forces with some 20 other similarly disabled pilots, to launch a campaign to alert the public to what should be seen as one of the most alarming scandals of our time.

Yet two days later came further evidence of how the regulatory authorities, in alliance with the airline industry itself, have stopped at nothing to cover up a health disaster whose financial costs for the industry could run to many billions.

Children see mother die on flight
By Andrew Levy and Gerard Couzens
A mother of five died in front of her family after falling ill on a flight home from a holiday in Spain.
Lesley Birds, 41, had a fit and stopped breathing minutes after take-off with her husband and three of their children.
A nurse and two medics on board the Boeing 737 tried to revive her as the plane was diverted to make an emergency landing in Barcelona. But waiting paramedics were unable to save her.

Are airports good places to go shopping?
It looks as if holidaymakers are going to have to save extra spending money when Heathrow terminal 5 opens next year. With a planned 142 shops, and only 700 seats in which to sit and wait for your flight to be called, the new Richard Rogers-designed building is expected to feel more like a modern Arndale shopping centre than an oversized waiting room. Retail income last year for BAA was £600m, two thirds of its income from landing charges, and it clearly plans to build on past successes.

Airports such as Heathrow and Gatwick have always been excellent places for “fall-back” shopping, perfect for forgetful travellers who require extra deodorant or swimwear.
