Quotes

"A second runway is planned to be built at Bandaranaike International Airport to support the Airbus A380."
"The team we work with is very professional and prompt whenever we have a question," Long wrote in an email. "They are very proactive about letting us know when things are happening around the airport that may affect our schedules, like a runway closure. They make it very easy for us to do business out there."
The Arrow pilot replied, "All right, I can go down lower if you like."
..." The Government Accountability Office reached the same conclusion in a report last year, writing that "We could not determine the extent to which these new policies impact fatigue because FAA does not have metrics to measure the effects of its scheduling practices." (GAO's AV-2013-120)
