I just had a thought and question about the 2 airplanes that crashed, one in SFO (Asiana Airlines) and the other one in LGA (Southwest Airlines).
I remember sometime April 2013, there were news about the furlough and closing of over a hundred control towers and limiting the amount of airplanes that can fly in one day. The Airline industry lobbied against this and Obama signed something to where the amount of flights will not be limited.
I'm wondering if the furlough on control towers actually happened yet the amount of flights were not limited despite the lack of enough people in the control towers? And if so, could this be the reason why we have 2 airplane crashes already right in the airport or is this just a mere coincidence?
Does anyone know if there had been any control tower employee lay offs since the talks about the furlough?
