    Southwest Plane Slides off Wet Runway at Burbank Airport

    https://www.breitbart.com/local/2018...rbank-airport/



    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southwest plane slid off a wet runway as it landed during heavy rain at Hollywood Burbank Airport north of Los Angeles.

    The Federal Aviation Administration says no injuries were reported during the landing Thursday as a powerful fall storm swept through the region.

    FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane came to a stop in a graded area designed to slow aircraft that overshoot the runway.

    “Mud was hitting the windows,” passenger Grant Palmer told CBS Los Angeles. “So that’s when I started thinking, well, we do have a problem here. We must no longer be on the runway.”

    “There was a little bit of sliding, and that was irregular,” another passenger said. “I’ve never experienced that before.”

    117 passengers were on board the flight.

    Meanwhile, snow has forced the closure of Interstate 5 in the Grapevine area between LA and the San Joaquin Valley. Transportation officials say vehicles were sliding in lanes along the key north-south route.

    Closer to sea level, the system dumped rain that flooded highways and caused nightmare traffic conditions for commuters.

    A mudslide closed Pacific Coast Highway and other roads in the Malibu area, where hillsides were denuded by recent wildfires.

    Journalist claims 'women-only' plane sections could combat midair assault

    https://www.foxnews.com/travel/journ...id-air-assault

    One female journalist has declared that “women-only seating sections on planes” is the way to a safer future in the high skies, avowing that the armrest in commercial passenger seating is a “gender political issue” in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

    Last month, columnist Kate Whitehead penned a piece for the South China Morning Post titled "Manspreading on a plane: In the age of #MeToo, even the armrest is a gender politics issue." Although the story has since been criticized by commenters, she is factually correct in her assertion that sexual assault is indeed on the rise in the high skies.

    “I dream of a future in which there are women-only seating sections on planes. Most women intuitively understand that the armrest is “neutral territory” and leave it as a slim buffer between them and their neighbor,” Whitehead writes. “I’d be prepared to campaign vocally for “pink rows”, but I suspect airlines wouldn’t be in favor because that would mean other rows full only of men – and that wouldn’t work.”

    “I dream of a future in which there are women-only seating sections on planes. Most women intuitively understand that the armrest is “neutral territory” and leave it as a slim buffer between them and their neighbor."

    “Men – and airlines – depend on encroachment onto women’s seats for comfortable travel,” she continues. “I hope that in the wake of the #MeToo movement, people will come to realise that the airline armrest is a gender political issue. The first airline to establish “pink rows” will have my [business.]”

    “Nine times out of 10 – based on my extensive experience flying “cattle class” – if a man is seated beside a woman he will claim the armrest,” Whitehead claims. “With the average seat width being 17.2 inches, this means you have effectively lost about 12 per cent. If you are unfortunate enough to be in the middle of a row and have a man on either side, you have lost nearly a quarter of your seat. And yet you are paying the same price as those space-invading men.”

    For context, Whitehead’s call for gender-specified seating on airplanes is not entirely original. Air India, India’s national carrier, debuted women-only rows on planes in 2017, following two reported incidents of assault, according to the New Zealand Herald. Likewise, Vistara, another Indian carrier, rolled out a "Woman Flyer" service, which gave preferred seating to women traveling alone.

    Commenters on Whitehead’s story, meanwhile, were less than supportive of her pitch.

    “Grow up ladies, the world don't revolve around you,” one critic clapped.

    “How ridiculous is this! Next it's women only planes, then pilots and cabin crew,” another agreed.

    “Is this supposed to be Satire?” another chimed in.

Likewise, Vistara, another Indian carrier, rolled out a "Woman Flyer" service, which gave preferred seating to women traveling alone.

    In a larger sense, however, multiple cases of midflight sexual harassment and assault in the U.S. have made national headlines through the last year. Over the summer, the FBI issued a statement on the increasing threat of sexual assault on commercial flights. According to the bureau’s findings, for example, 2017 saw 63 reported cases of in-flight sexual assault, while 2014 had seen 38.

    And 2018 also had its share of sexual abuse claims too. In August, a Detroit-area man was convicted after a five-day trial by a federal jury for sexually assaulting a sleeping passenger on a Spirit Airlines flight.

    A month later, a Delta passenger sued the airline claiming that crew members failed to detain a passenger who sexually assaulted her during a flight. Also in September, a Texas man was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a fellow passenger on a Southwest flight.

    In early November, a former senior Alaska Airlines pilot was fired after a female co-pilot sued the airline, alleging that the captain drugged and raped her during a June 2017 work trip. The aviator, who flew for Alaska Airlines for 22 years, claims he was wrongly terminated amid “false #MeToo claims” in a “negligent, flawed investigation.”

    In response, in mid-November, the Trump administration announced the creation of a new task force dedicated to investigating sexual misconduct and assault crimes in the high skies, an issue that the FBI has described as increasing “at an alarming rate” in recent years.

    The National In-Flight Sexual Misconduct Task Force will be a subcommittee of the Aviation Consumer Protection Advisory Committee; the group is slated to have their inaugural meeting on Jan. 16, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

    Man who sexually assaulted woman on flight while she slept is jailed for nine years


    A man who sexually assaulted a woman on a plane while she slept in the seat next to him has been jailed in the US.
    Prabhu Ramamoorthy, 34, was also sitting next to his wife on the overnight flight in January.

    The Indian man, who moved to the US in 2015, has now been sentenced to nine years in prison.

    During his trial, the 23-year-old woman said she woke up during the journey and “saw his hands inside” her.
    Ramamoorthy had molested the victim while unbuttoning her blouse and unzipping her trousers as she slept
    .

    The victim said that she felt “petrified, frozen” during the assault.

    She watched the sentencing hearing from the first row of the court, accompanied by her boyfriend.

    US attorney Matthew Schneider said: “Everyone has the right to be secure and safe when they travel on aeroplanes. We appreciate the victim in this case for her courage to speak out.”

    Prosecutors asked the court for a sentence of nearly 11 years but James Amberg, Ramamoorthy’s defence lawyer, had asked the court for a sentence of less than 10 years.

    US District Judge Terrence Berg said he hoped the jail term would be “grave enough” to deter others from committing similar assaults.

    Ramamoorthy arrived in the US on a work visa in 2015 and lives in Detroit with his wife.
    The couple were flying from Las Vegas to Detroit with Spirit Airlines after a trip to the Grand Canyon.
    Ramamoorthy declined to make a statement before receiving his sentence.

    The judge noted his lack of remorse but said that the 35-year-old had the right to stay silent.
    A jury convicted Ramamoorthy in August.

    He will be deported to India (maybe @Itsback can teach him how to open coconuts then) after serving his prison term.

    Mr Amberg told the judge that the conviction would bring “severe and lifelong consequences” to Ramamoorthy and his wife when they returned to India.

    “His life is effectively over,” the lawyer said.

    Grupo Aeromexico, an airline holding company, headquartered in Mexico City that owns and operates Aeromexico, is investigating a possible drone strike that severely damaged one of its Boeing 737 jetliners as the aircraft approached its final destination in Tijuana, Mexico, reported Bloomberg.
    Several social media reports and local Mexican news media confirmed by Grupo Aeromexico that Flight 773 from Guadalajara was in final approach (also called the final leg and final approach leg) to the airport when the crew heard a “very strong blow” to the aircraft. The pilots were able to land without further incident, as no passengers were injured.
