Not saying that AT ALL.
The FAA ATC system is forty years old. Even their updated system is starting to have problems. But there's nothing that can be done about it because
year after year the FAA gets a continuing resolution, which won't pay for new toilets, let alone the new system desperately needed.
It just annoys me that instead of taking THAT from this situation, the media is running with what is essentially a hit piece on the airlines. If they
were to focus on the RIGHT things (them not you), then maybe there would finally be some outrage and the FAA could get the money, and we could at
LEAST replace the worst of the current system, if not something totally new.
Updates are not a bother or a waste of time by any means. Hell, maybe we can start spreading the word that the ATC system is falling apart.
