If you haven't flown Qatar or Emerates, don't knock them. They put US carriers to shame. This isn't some little podunk airline, they are a major player and given their purchasing history, my guess is that they have something in the works that would negate the need for the 777X in any case.
The last time I flew Qatar (New York to Nairobi, security was every bit as comprehensive as any other airline, more than most and yet I never felt as though I was being imposed upon.

It's their dollar, they can buy what they want. If they feel the F-15 is not giving enough bang for their buck, they are free to rebid or simply purchase something else.With a teen-aged ego maniac at the nuclear button 200 miles away, they have every right to want the most they can get.

When we complained later, they offered us 5,000 skymiles.......
Yeah, I believe it.... Delta is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to commercial
The purpose of starting the suit at this point is to make certain that none of the potentially responsible parties runs a document through a shredder or destroys a part in the name of testing. Once evidence is lost, by whatever means, then part of the truth goes with it. While there are time periods during which actions can be commenced, and those certainly have not even gotten beyond the period of days, let alone years, there is no such protection against the preservation of evidence.
Now, lets just for argument purposes, say that the autothrottles were defective, because of the way they were designed, the way they were built or the way they were maintained, and that the defective autothrottles were 5% responsible for the accident, that the slides were defective in design or build or maintenance and that the same were responsible in part for some of the injuries sustained by the passengers or crew. If the injured parties were to bring action only against Asiana and proof was late
