Share Solutions for Identifying Problems And Improving Processes
"When mistakes are made, we have a very counterproductive habit of blaming someone for a problem and thinking that retraining them in the same activity will make the problem go away and a lot of the time, the issue simply resurfaces. Moreover, it doesn't stop the next person getting it wrong either"

"Passenger revenues are down and the outlook for the next 12 months is likely to remain uncertain at best. So now, more than ever, we need to keep our costs low and innovate at the same time. It is all about how we balance reliability with reducing costs and controlling risk. Easy to say, but the challenging part is actually achieving such sweet-spot."
