An ambulance from a private ambulance service traveling southbound stopped to render assistance to the injured driver, who had gotten out of the car, said Westport Assistant Fire Chief Robert Kepchar.

Talking Transportation: Aviation in a Tailspin

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

Anybody who reads this column knows how I feel about flying. I loathe it. I would sooner endure an overnight sleeper car on Amtrak than three hours of turbulence on a regional jet. 

talkingtransportation250.jpg

Talking to friends and business associates, I find I am not alone in my dislike of air travel. The airline business is in a tailspin. Airlines keep cutting air fares to hold market share while also cutting staff pay and, many fear, safety. 

Their fleets are smaller and so too are the jets. On routes that used to see 737s, you’re lucky to be on a Canadair RJ. And forget about 767s on transcons. They’re now run with 737s or A320s.

Empty seats?  Not anymore. Since 9/11, we’ve seen 70,000 jobs lost in the airline business.

Saturday Sandbars

WestportNow.com Image
People and canines alike enjoyed walking on the sandbars that spanned the length of Compo Beach during Saturday’s low tide. The trick to walking the sandbars is all in the timing. To avoid a wet walk back to shore, one must keep an eye on the incoming tide. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U. Miller for WestportNow.com
