More cost-cutting?

When a low-cost carrier (LCC) announces a huge savings program – to stay in business -there is room for some concern. To be a LCC, most corners have already been cut. Any further savings can be done – in the best of worlds – without affecting flight safety. Trimming the organization, fleet changes, route changes and what not.                          Cost-cutting that does affect flight safety (has been done industry-wide – and has proven in some cases catastrophic) can be listed in four categories. Absurd duty times (read fatigue), sloppy aircraft maintenance, insufficient fuel reserves and inadequate pilot training. With authorities being traditionally lenient when it comes to enforcing stricter regulations, there is room for airlines to continue savings.                                                  And room for more concern.
