A recent Wall Street Journal article indicates that Air France is taking an unusual step in asking its partner airline, Delta, to help assess its safety practices. The Air France CEO stated, “Safety is a dynamic thing, the risk is to say, ‘We’ve done our work, so let’s stop.’” This action emanates from the June crash of an Air France flight en route from Brazil to Paris.
On the one hand it is unbelievably sad to see that an accident becomes the straw that initiates action to delve more deeply into safety issues. But we find optimism in that the CEO recognizes the dynamic nature of safety. We wholeheartedly agree.
