All American Airlines Flights Grounded

Tyler Durden's picture





 

For those flying in the northeast today, especially in and out of Boston, it is just not their day (all the more so if there are terroristy-looking, Arab-speaking passengers nearby). The day just got much worse for those flying American Airlines. Via BBG:

  • FAA SAYS ALL AMERICAN FLIGHTS GROUNDED AT AIRLINE'S REQUEST
  • FAA SAYS AMERICAN GROUNDINGS DUE TO AIRLINE COMPUTER PROBLEMS
  • AMERICAN AIRLINES SAYS SABRE RESERVATION SYSTEM OFFLINE
  • AMERICAN AIRLINES REPORTS RESERVATION SYSTEM OUTAGE ON TWITTER
  • SABRE SAYS THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS WITH AIRLINE BOOKING SYSTEM
  • FLIGHTS MAY RESUME AT 5PM EASTERN

Must be the evil Chinese hackers' fault again, and it is about time the government stepped in and regulated the entire Internet, preferably with a kill switch to get rid of all the pesky, fringe elements.

Update from American:

UPDATE as of 3:30pm CDT: Our systems have been fully restored, however we expect continued flight delays and cancellations throughout the remainder of the day. We have made several options available to our customers:

 

If customers must travel today and are already at the airport, they can rebook on another airline by visiting an American Airlines agent or by going to the other airline’s ticket counter with their electronic ticket number.

 

If customers must travel today and are not yet at the airport, they can rebook through American Airlines reservations or through another carrier and American will honor the fare difference.

 

If a customer chooses not to travel today, there will be no charge for reservation changes or a full refund will be provided.

 

It is important to note we see no evidence that today’s technical outage is related to the tragic events in Boston.

 

We will continue to provide more information throughout the day as we make progress in resolving this issue. We apologize to our customers and our people for this inconvenience

One possible motive for the Boston Marathon Bombing

Consider:
- after all of these foreign wars securing energy for peak oil
- and them now fracking us to death
- with the environment and resource depletion spiraling out of control
- the economy is re-tanking again
- and all of these trillions of un-fulfillable promises are coming due...

Why not create random violent/terrorist events to establish fortress/prison America?

To train the citizenry to abhor actual freedom in exchange for false security. And this allows one to have security forces in place as austerity really bites.*   

It's a cheap method to boot.  A bargain really, when compared to 9/11.

And to tickle your antennae just a bit:  

While they are at it, why not make it look like anti-tax people? So that if one is opposed to paying taxes to the government/corporations then one is associated with terrorists.... Hit em with a left and then a right.

In other words, prepping. 1% style. The psychotic top 1% of the 1%.  Up there it is not about left or right, conservative or liberal, it is just up and down. Like chess, and they and their friends are 20 moves ahead with a rigged board.  And they see this tsunami is heading our way...

It is nothing new actually, dictators and kings have been doing it for millenia, they were just more open about it.

Hey if you can entertain some JFK theories, why not this?

*I heard Ted Koppel with my own ears tell people that they should expect and not question heightened security at all public events. Basically get used police everywhere and you should feel bad if you question it.  (CBS 7:55PM PST)"

This has been the theory for sometime amongst the enemies of America, that all anyone would have to do is, wage a low intenisity war (small scale attacks and bombs), with repeated attacks every couple of weeks of even one a month, and the paranoia and anger would tear the Country apart, bringing everything to a standstill and collapsing the economy, in a short period of time!

Its called the "Snowball Theory" and will see if its in play! And don't be so nieve to think that our enemies are just Arabs at this point!

It is a brilliant 645 page piece of legislation that is due to be released sometime this afternoon.

It basically allows unrestricted police searches of anyone anytime for anything (or for no reason at all) ... arbitrary (and reporting optional) arrests and indefinite detention of anybody for any reason... and basically everything else that the Modern Security State will require...

Yes, Airport 1975. (It's a disaster movie).

It cost $3 mil, grossed $47 mil (old dollars).

 

Or, you could try...

Two minute warning.

An unknown sniper (Warren Miller) positions himself at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum prior to a professional football championship similar to The Super Bowl. He is spotted by a Goodyear Blimp camera. Police and SWAT team are immediately called in by the stadium manager Sam McKeever (Martin Balsam).

Police Captain Peter Holly (Charlton Heston), working with SWAT team Sergeant Chris Button (John Cassavetes), devises a plan to capture the sniper before the conclusion of the game.

 

 

And you wonder why we're all disappointed at the real life versions...

 

 

[Edit: God, please don't try and watch them, they're terrible. Heston was your "Go to Man for disaster films" in that period though]

The joys of rule by Hysteria.

Just remember, those poor saps going on hunger strikes in Gitmo are VERY safe from any so called acts of terror.

And, if you have armed guards surrounding you, it's not the act of terror that you are afraid of so much, it is probably the fact that there are armed People about, who you do not command and therefore do not trust.

The guards, walls, razor wire, cuffs, hoods, earmuffs and solitary are for their own saftey.

I used to put on over 100k/yr and Mrs K wonders why I don't like it anymore.
Not that security, smaller seats, less civil staff and passengers have anything to do with it, of course.

I had executive platinum status with AA during the late 90's and early 2000's.  First class wasn't too bad back then... now it sucks.

I will never again set foot on another flying machine unless it's absolutely necessary.

No kidding.  The last time I flew was in 2005 - to Scotland.  Each flight, connecting flight, there and back I was pulled aside, grilled as to my travel plans, luggage searched, etc.  Being a tall, blonde, green-eyed woman with a Midwest accent, I didn't think I really fit the profile.

I bet you own gold, store food, and have Libertarian tendencies.  That makes you a member of one of the most dangerous terror groups that exist:  Domestic Extremist.  And if you happened to be a Christian on top of all that, well that just wraps up the final paragraph in the book now, doesn't it...

They've been flying remotely a lot longer than cell phones have existed. Crazy that one can access the flight control system unencrypted, via radio, though.

Must the the fault of those terrible radicals, Patriots who fought to throw off foreign rule by international banksters and monarchists from Britain and Europe. 

Yeah, those guys would blow up their own people in Boston in an anti-government protest, say  many politicians and their main scream media. But are too dim to blow up the financial district and government buildings including the Federal Reserve Board, just a few minutes away?

Yeah, those terrible patriots who believe in the Constitution - not the spew from CNN CIA and the New York Post ramping up the hysteria by making unfounded accusations about a 'Saudi', a 'student', a 'foreign passport', an 'extremist', 'right wingers'...blah, blah, blah.

This is what it looked like in Germany before the Nazis funded by Rothschild Zionists instigated WWII, and dragged the USA into it against the will of the people.

This is what it looks like in most of the Middle East and Far East where totalitarian regimes use physical or financial terrorism to subjugate the many for the few.

Long live the Republic of the USA, hijacked after 1913 by foreign forces of the Rothschild Zionist and European monarchist persuasion, using Operation Paperclip to import their hateful Nazis into the highest level of U.S. science, academia, government and legal structures.

They also funded Josef Stalin who said that random acts of terrorism on domestic soil would ensure that people begged for tighter government control, authoritarian rule.

'Never let a crisis go to waste,' said Rahm Emmanuel, one of the most powerful people in the U.S. and his family ...spewing their hateful ideology.

Did I miss the first wave that was hauled in?  I don't recall hearing roll-call for anarchists... they are ALWAYS at the top of the list (and a smaller, and, while portrayed otherwise, less violent of most other groups).
