    is industry self-regulation a good idea ... ?

    okay - okay - 'cut and paste' ... however, this is of a seminal nature and might affect everybody in one way or another, sooner or later, so should spark some lively (and interesting) commets:

    He is the latest airline boss to speak out against the flight bans imposed across Europe.

    Mr Walsh is demanding the authorities lift the flight ban and allow the airlines themselves to judge when it's safe to fly.

    The criticism came as hopes mounted for stranded passengers that services might resume.

    Airspace in Scotland, the north of England and Northern Ireland was due to reopen on Tuesday, said Britain's air traffic control body.

    Meanwhile, Germany's aviation authority has allowed Lufthansa to fly 50 planes back to Germany with about 15,000 passengers aboard.

    European airlines have asked the EU and national governments for financial compensation for the closure of airspace.

    The carrier estimates it is losing up to $30.5m (£20m; 22.7m euros) a day. Air France-KLM said it was losing $47m per day.

    Mr Bisignani, of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), said the scale of the crisis facing the industry was now greater than at the time of the 9/11 attacks on the US.

    "The decision that Europe has made is with no risk assessment, no consultation, no co-ordination, no leadership," he said.

    In short, no. Since industry is motivated by profit it's kinda sketchy imo.

    B-r-a-d-l-e-y...Why? Because I'm Bradley!
