Airlines, Airports, and Horrible tragedies

This was a bad month for airplanes, again. But unlike the Malaysia air tragedies, this crash seems to be deliberate. At least, that’s how it’s been presented. Still, we might see some changes in the policies of the airliners in Europe. Policies I thought had been in place since 2001. It seems, however, that those policies were American and I simply thought that airline rules were international. Silly me.
