Here's a query.
Any air accident which results in deaths which were avoidable, in this case due to a failure to follow regulations with regard to securing cargo, is
clearly the fault of the company. Therefore, is it not a reasonable thing to put in place a regulation which states that if your company is ever found
to be responsible for the downing of an aircraft and the death of its occupants, whether the flight is cargo or passenger carrying, that the company
be immediately bankrupted by the scale of any fine?
That would get the people on the ground and the people in the boardroom paying attention to the only thing that matters in that business, not
profits, not numbers, but safety. Why is this not a rule? Its pretty simple, if a company or manager within that company ever screws up to the point
where someone dies, the whole company gets fined its entire net worth. Seems fair to me!
