"Sports? Yeah. All right, Jay Ratliff, Time and J. We have a challenge for the airlines, which is exactly what they need on that is the price of oil, It is is back up and back until one year high. Yeah, Mike, that's exactly right. And at a time when we really thought Have to return the calendar that by the first early part of February, we would see the demand for travel increasing a bit. Some markets is still down 65 to 75%. And when you have those low numbers and do prices increasing, as you mentioned, it's the latest of many challenges facing the airline industry and You just wonder how much more they can take is all that continues to pile on. You, no doubt And then we have passengers with will call the unique way of avoiding excess baggage fees has happened in China. It did in the face for passengers were told for them to carry on the excess baggage. They had grabbed the crate of oranges. Those have cost him $46, and I guess they took exception Events.

They sat down and ate all £66 of oranges between them for the four guys that took him about 30 minutes in the show, you moment of caring the oranges on board the plane.

What happens if you test positive for COVID-19 and can’t fly back to the US?
"About 50,000 flight attendants from 17 Airlines wants those airlines to share their individual. No fly list information right now. Those lists are kind of airline specific. Jay Ratliff, Aviation expert Joining us all the coca News Live. I'm good to have you back J Hey, pleasant. Good morning. So these no fly lists. Um what are the no fly list about? Do they involve masks or are they just generally people behaving badly in the skies? When the mask policy was put into place by airlines is is kind of a way to Yeah, Get some passengers to be a little bit more comfortable about flying at first, you may remember is optional If he had a medical condition you didn't have to worry about wearing a mask, but it seems like 78% of the aircraft had some sort of medical issue. Opted not to wear them. So that's when it became mandatory for anyone over two years of age to wear masks during the entire flight over your nose and your mouth. Some passengers did not want to do that, And as a result, they created either issues in the gate or onboard an aircraft. And those passengers had to be removed or once the plate was completed. Escorted off of the aircraft, and those passengers were put on the airlines No fly list, which is basically This is in place until the mass policy is listed. And then we will welcome you back. But until then, since you've proven that you can't abide by our mass policy, we're gonna ban you until The policy is no longer in place that the issue is if I act upon a Delta flight and cause a disturbance that gets to wherever we're going, they pulled me off the flight and say, Look, you're not gonna be arrested. But you didn't follow the airlines mass policies were banning you from Delta Airlines for the time being. Could say Okay, and then I just zip on down to United. Grab a flight on them, and I can fly anywhere. I want to go and the flight attendants are saying, Look, if J X up on Delta. The consequences shouldn't only be on Delta. It should be on all U. S carriers. You're basically giving this crazy guy can opportunities on 10 different airlines to act up inconveniencing perhaps 10 different flights that they're on, and flight attendants are just that the point now where every single day Mask police. There's no federal guidelines for mass policies yet, so it's all the airline policy and most people recognize it As such, so they really don't feel threatened by, you know, getting in trouble, so to speak. Because they know it's going to be something that only involves that airline. There's not gonna be fined or anything like that. However, last week, the Federal Aviation Administration came out said Look, if you cause an onboard disturbance with an airline You face a possible fine of up to $35,000. So now there's a little bit more of an incentive for somebody like Jay to not create a problem with the mask or anything else. So that I don't get in trouble with the FAA. All right, So let's move on to, you know, travel in the age of covert with airlines that went toe, you know, they were started by keeping people at least one seat apart now, not so much on now. There's an Air American Airlines initiative for a health passport. So how does that work exactly? American Airlines is the first airline to adopt this health passport. They're working with Vera fly. It's an app that can show whether or not you've been tested for the coronavirus. And it comes in handy because now that the CDC is saying as of the 26th of this month, if you fly internationally, you're coming back into the United States. You're gonna have to prove that you've had a negative covert test within three days. Of your date of travel, or you have to show documentation that you had the coroner virus you recovered, Okay? And the issue is how do you prove that? Well, this app is in place. Now that will make these these medical testing or records available quickly. So it is you fly. You can show the agents you have, and then you'll be able to board the plate back into the United States. Clusters. Other countries around the world that had that same sort of requirement for entry into their country. And this type of Anak would satisfy those countries. For the most part. Or they could see Okay, you've been tested. It was in three days. No positive tests, You know, come on into the country. You don't have quarantine for 14 days. Alright, And we're gonna see more airlines following suit of this now. The real interesting part is Are we going to see this domestically? Qantas Airlines has already said once the vaccine is out there passengers have been vaccinated will be allowed to fly on certain flights if you've not been vaccinated. They're not gonna let you fly. Oh, if you think you think we're having fun over, you know, mask situations. Wait. So that rules out And when you guys were kidding about Burbank earlier, laughing because they said, you guys may not be too far off. If this type of thing happens domestically, I don't think it will. But I learned a long time ago. And 30 years of doing my aviation reports. You never say never when it comes to the airline industry. Oh, boy, they were at left.

"Analyst Jay Ratliff J. Thank you for coming on the mark. Blazer show. Welcome in. How are you, brother? Doing well, my Savannah Wife took great care of us that Thanksgiving, and in the past, he has made his many of 10 or 12 pies for Thanksgiving. In addition, all the food This was a two pie Thanksgiving. So it shows you how far we come back. Outstanding. All right? Um, Speaking of Thanksgiving, we know air travel was down. They knew that. You know, we knew that was going to happen. But the question is J Was it down? As much as they thought or predicted, cause I know they're the turnstiles were still moving. They were and look, We're Americans, right? You've got people. Don't you tell me not to travel. Don't you tell me to do anything and Look, there's a lot of people that they're on Lee Trip of the year was Thanksgiving. And even though the C D C a week before Thanksgiving came out, said We really recommend that you don't fly. Some people are just worn out from this year and they're thinking I've got to connect with my relative. My parents, my kids, whatever it was And last year We had When you look at the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, which is the second busiest travel day of the year, followed by the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Those two days are the busiest. Single to travel days of the year. Last year, we had about 5.6 million people their flu on those two days. This year. We had just over 2.2 million, So I mean, we're done like 60% over where we were at last year in some of that had to do with concerns of war. The coronavirus And you know people still not being comfortable with either the aircraft environment or the airport environment after of the high risk nature, So airlines actually thought they would be seeing Maura than that they thought it would be closer than 50% Mark, and it was not wasn't even close. And the media, of course, picked up on the idea that we had more people flying those two days that on average over the last, you know, month or two, which is certainly the case. It wasn't that huge oven increase, but it was a higher number. And you know the narrative was people don't care. They're flying anyways. Well, you know, if the airlines tell us it's safe to fly. Then what risk are we taking? If we're if we're flying so You know, there's a lot of mixed messages, and I think that's what drives a lot of people crazy. They're just not the consistency out there that they really need to make the right types of decisions and assessments. Well, the fact of the matter is J that flying is still incredibly safe regarding coronavirus because of all of the measures that the airlines take. To provide that safety and it's very, very safe. And I try to push that as much as I can on the show because I think it's very, very important. You know, for many, many reasons, but people need to know that because sometimes if you just kind of half paying attention You might see some crazy story where it's like, Oh, you know, you're more likely to get it flying her, but the fact of the matter is, it's really safe. It is and but recognize a lot of the studies that we've seen over the last two months. Have been sponsored by the airline. So you kinda have toe take that with a grain of salt. Although look again, they have a very aggressive modern day ventilation system on these airplanes using those HEPA filters, the same kind used Emergency operating room. So it is it's state of the art. But you know, there've been there's a New Zealand research firm that I think of the month of September did a lot of some did some studies on long haul flights. 16 18 hours They found people. Even with all the safety precautions were still catching the corona virus from fellow You know, people on the plane, so You've got the reports going back and forth. But there's some people are saying, Look, I'm just waiting for the vaccine, or I'm waiting for whatever to return to travel on. Of course, the airline's biggest worry on top of everything. Is that now that some businesses have shifted to the video conferencing they working at home, the need for traveling to visit people face to face is reduced in some Businesses in airlines. They get 70% and Maura of their revenue from these corporate men and women that fly every week. There's a lot of businesses that have made it clear we're not going to resume the same level of travel corporate standpoint is what we did before. Yeah, I hard aviation analyst Jay Ratliff joining us, J. You have a Day trade fun dot com website and we all know the Dow just recently up for the first time in history up over 30,000. It is up right now, as we speak, and Your thoughts on all of this. I mean where we headed? I mean, it's it's probably some of it is due to this vaccination news. Everything's very good with regard to that. Not so much that you know, it seems like Biden's team is trying to take credit for this, You know, you know politicians. Of course they are. But I will. I will tell you this investors reacted. Favorably to Biden selecting Janet Yellen, perhaps as his Treasury secretary. That is a she's a known quantity. She's not gonna be someone that's going to be an Elizabeth Warren or somebody else that may be far left as far as her political views that would want to introduce a lot of Untrue. I'd uncertain policies into the monetary, uh, situation of our country.

"Aviation expert Jay Ratliff J. Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us about this. This is gonna be a unique year. You're probably going to have smaller crowds at the airports. But there are other challenges that are in play because of the pandemic. What are some of the big ones that people should keep in mind? Well, I mean, obviously, if you've got blown in awhile, t s a dot gov is the way that you need to start as far as reviewing some of the changes. It may be taking place at the security checkpoint that you're not yet aware of, and also certainly go to the airline's website to make sure that you're familiar and comfortable with The safety guidelines they have in place, mainly the mask policies that are required or basically, anyone. That's two years of age or older is required to keep that mask on through the entire time. You're at the airport. In the gate area on board the aircraft and throughout the entire flight of them when you might be eating or drinking in that mass needs tol be basically around your nose and face. We've had too many incidents over the last several weeks where people have tried to challenge this. And basically, you know that they faced the consequences when they do. So you need to make sure that you're aware of that long before you get to the airport. Airlines have really started to take very seriously the wearing of mass to the point where if people don't do it, then they're gonna be banned from flights in the future. Correct. Oh, yes. In fact, we've had more than 2500 was the last count that I saw people that have been banned from various airlines around the country. It's not collectively you're not banned from all the airlines, but it's airlines specific. Because of the fact that they were not able or willing to abide by the airlines, mass policy and, of course in the early days of the pandemic. Airlines could rapidly see how the demand for travel was dropping. So they came out with a a very loud message to everyone that would listen about how they're cleaning and sanitizing their aircraft as never before. Basically sending the message that it is, in fact, safe to fly problem was very few people responded, and that's when they came forth. Talking about The HEPA filters and the aggressive filtration system is constantly putting in Fresh air as far as in the cabin of the aircraft, keeping it as sterile as possible. And when that didn't work, they started to enforce the mass policy and hopes that would bring people back. But We're just not seeing it. We're seeing seven or 800,000. Sometimes 900,000 people fly in the course of a day. Right. We're used to seeing 2.32 point 42.5 million a day, So airlines they're certainly struggling is they're trying to get as many people as possible. Back to the airport. I'm joined by her radio aviation expert, Jay Ratliff to talk about air travel this Thanksgiving. So what are we expecting to see this week? Usually this is an extremely busy time for air travel, but I think it's safe to say this year is gonna be a bit different. You know you're right. It's Super Bowl Sunday Week. I mean the airlines from the Wednesday before Thanksgiving until the Monday after Thanksgiving. We Seymour flights, more people packed flights. I mean, we have some increased travel numbers, and that's where the airlines make a good bit of their profits. In fact, the Sunday after Thanksgiving is historically A single busiest travel.

"And in San Diego versus the Dodgers, and that is a look at sports right here on 700. We turn to Jay Ratliff and J. We have American Airlines flight attendant gave a classy goodbye speech. She did. And you know when this first hit my inbox, Mike, I had to admit, I thought, Oh, no. Here. Here's another political statement that an employee is making on her last day on the job turned out not to be. The gates were out of Ross's on her Last flight is American Airlines Flight attendant preparing to land in the Dallas made the pre arrival announcement and at the end of it had a very heartfelt thank you. For the passengers on board and for making part of Ah, very special part of her life, and it was a very touching video. It was captured and we ended up on our aviation log today, and that's made possible is always with greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky. International Airport. Now stairs Remember roundtrip to $76, and you can find that more great deals was always a cg airport dot com. All right, and then Pakistan International Airlines. Had this issue. I forgot how they first busted them, but they had First a handful of pilots who cheated on getting their licenses and it turns out they got a lot of them. That Mike it started after a deadly plane crash that they had the investigation unveiled that they had pilots that had had fake pilot license or that had individuals cheat on their pilot exams. And that led to okay. More than one or two people. Yeah, turned out to be more than 150 pilots, and over the weekend, they fired an additional 54 over fake credentials. Fact, the whole situation has created a ban from Pakistan International airlines flying to through or even over Europe for a period of six months. And the that investigation continues like this may be an airline that you know several months down the road may cease to fly because of all the problems that they've had, and and rightfully so. All right. As far as weather today we're looking at some other issues. Champ of Washington, D C in New York. Some of those delays could reach an hour, but the rest of the country, uh in shape for a lot of on time. Flight should be good data flying right. We'll take that. Vijay, We thank you our lunch very much, right? I don't wanna look at how much a one bedroom apartment goes for in Cincinnati. Because in other parts of the country, San Francisco mean that Smokey all the time. It's expensive all the time. No people are kind of fleeing that city similar to the way people are getting out of New York. Just looking for Ah, no room to spread out. During these covert times anyway, they say rents there. Have dropped 20% from a year ago. So they are down to for a one bedroom apartment in San Francisco. They have fallen to 8 2030 for a one bedroom apartment. What would a one bedroom apartment go for here under 1000? I think Probably The largest decline that they recorded month to month ever. The price of a medium one bedroom in the city dropped 7% in the last month. So there's a flood of supply in the market. Some runners may be inclined to move to the suburbs to get more space. Um, Facebook and Google there to companies that are allowing people to work from home so they could move to a different state if they want to. Rising unemployment is forcing some people in the less expensive areas as well. Then you have great to get out of the city and you have the wildfires are better off in some cases, just getting out of the state. If they're down 20%. That would mean that the average one bedroom apartment wass in the neighborhood of 32 to $3300 a month. So even without taxes, you'd have to make About $40,000 a year just to make your rent. But take taxes are certainly with figuring in the income tax. You didn't make 50 grand a year just to pay your rent and then good luck, You know, having something left over for food. That's a huge number. That God, Cincinnati, Ohio. What a pleasant place to live. I have to fight. I will find out with the median or more. The averages here for Ah, one bedroom apartment. After this news. That's my challenge Coming up on 6 28 News in about 2 700 wlw fixes.
Four international airlines return to Miami International Airport
"Aviation analyst, joining us now, Eh? So what? What is the lay of the land out there right now? So that Miami international, Actually he's getting back for international flights. It looks like we are starting to see a little more activity. We are, in fact, the PSA for the second weekend row, Brian reported that we had a day have traveled that more than 800,000 passengers were screened. I think last Monday. We had 862,000 change that were screen and obviously that's a huge increase over the mid April numbers where we had less than 90,000 people a day flying But we're still even at 862,000 good way away from the 2.5 to 3 million people that would normally be flying at this time during a typical normal summer travel season, so Now The good news is, we're we're headed in the right direction. And I think the airlines are trying to find a way and I think they're successfully doing so having passengers feel more comfortable about flying a little bit. By some of the reports that we're saying that come out, saying that it's becoming increasingly more difficult to catch the coronavirus on board an airplane and also with airlines. Absolutely being You know, adamant about their mass policy, and, you know, we've had several situations involving the mass policies that have happened with passengers around the country this week, and it just goes to show that the airlines are not budging at all on that. You know, J related. Something dawned on me recently and that is it. I'm guessing with the protocols that are in place. We don't have a bunch of problems with people that are arriving. To the airport that have cove in 19, or else we would be hearing about it, wouldn't we? Absolutely Now The thing that were a little bit at a disadvantage on is that the airlines don't keep the personal contact information for every passenger so that if we did have a situation on a flight with an airport We would easily be able to contact everyone that that individual came into contact with or was around the center of the disease Control has been, I think for the last two years trying to get airlines to start putting at least basic contact information. Into each passenger name record, and even earlier this spring, again urging the airlines now especially to do so. And the airline said no, they would not, it would cost Too much money for them to do so. And obviously, once we hit the corona virus crisis, having that kind of information would have allowed us perhaps to contain some things a little bit more successfully than we did. Were speaking to J Rally of his website is Jay Ratliff dot com. That's Jay Ratliff dot com. J. Howard fares doing at this point are we seen along with a bit of an increase in traffic and increase in pairs, as well. Actually, we're seeing some fair start to drop. I'm writing emails from people around the country that are looking at fairs from now until 11 months from now, and some are saying, You know, I was looking at this for three weeks ago or two months ago, and it was this rate and now it's here. You think it's a good a good deal, and it was, But by the time that they think about it, it's gone. So the idea is you keep an eye on those city pairs. If you've got a couple of cities that you're looking after your flying between later this fall early next year, and you check in the prices to 75 to 75 No wonder you look at it. It's to 25 jump all over it because of the airlines air rolling that out. They need cash, desperately brain. We've talked about that losing tens of millions of dollars a day. And if some of the advance bookings aren't what they think they should be. Will adjust the fairs and for the savvy traveler, the check and you need to do so is early in the days. You can. That's normally when the new fares were loaded. You might come across. Ah, rather good deal that you can take advantage of. In this, actually, you know, it kind of leads me to wonder. Are they operating at a loss? Just counting on getting to bail out at this point. Um, they're at this point. I'm hoping the cargo can pull him over the top because back in the month of September, many airlines air going more cargo, all passenger cargo passengers. Cargo flights versus passenger flight. So I mean the ideas that United American are still packing as many people on to the airplanes as they can, and they recognize coming into September, which is one of the slowest travel months of the year. We're gonna have a difficult time. So what? We're seeing Brian his adjustments to their future scheduled so that they can lose less money. If certain markets aren't really responding there. They're suspending those flights temporarily until the demand for that. Picks back up airlines right now. Very fluid situation. They're doing everything they can as quickly as they can. To try to predict what may be happening and then adjust their future flight schedule accordingly.

"Report with Jay Ratliff brought to you by the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport on 700 WLW Get Teo Jay Ratliff. We'll talk about flying in and we'll get to our slowdowns here in a bit, but first As we know with covert. 19 people still want to get places they still want to fly places they don't fly with other people. Therefore, private jets are a big deal right now more they are that's for sure, Mike. We're seeing more than 700,000 people like commercially. Every day, And the increase has been led by the leisure traveler, especially during the busier summer travel months. Now we're still a good ways away from the three million today that normally travel but we've not seen the corporate travel sector. Really returned to commercial aviation. Yet we're seeing a sharp increase in the use of corporate jets businesses were trying to keep their executives kind of separated from the increasing number of travellers of airports. Now, some of these smaller charter services are actually adding planes to their fleet. It really an unprecedented pace is they really struggle to keep up with the demand as commercial airlines fight for survival here and around the world? The charter service for the private jet industry if you will Growing like never before. Didn't didn't Delta announced. We're getting out of the private jet is kind of right before Cove it? Yes, they did. They had a private jet service that they had there was popular and they may end up bringing it back, Mike, because this is something that May prove to be especially for the commercial side of things remain soft for an extended period of time airlines going to look for a way to recapture that again made people using the virtual meetings and the other things.

"Jay Ratliff yep actor delta United American of all stated they're losing between fifty and a hundred million dollars a day most of them close to a hundred million dollars a day other desperate for cash and the many people so we'll J. why they still flying these airplanes when they should be parking unlike a lot of European airlines are doing and that is because these airlines ten of them here in the United States took the government bailout money part of that was with strings attached and you have to continue flying to the city that you're flying to prior to March first and you also have to maintain more than ninety percent of your employee work force because part of this money that you don't have to pay back is for payroll and they cannot make the massive cuts either of their service or their workforce until October first a United Airlines in the delta CEO both told their employees that look as of October first based on the demand that said hang on we're gonna have to make some unbelievable difficult choices and United's projecting it could be up to thirty percent of the work force a look at Southwest Airlines who in the history of their one forty nine years of being in business they've never laid one person off however and now they're at a point where dairy looking as well at the possibility of laying off of the first person in the history of that airline when you understand how much money airlines have been losing over the years for decades that kind of record is just it's incredible unfortunately it we will come to an end and if you do fly J. says get ready to wear a mask now that other airlines are requiring that we wear masks as well delta United frontier American they all kind of follow jet blue's lead it could very well could be the airlines are going to go to the expense of trying to provide mass so that everybody has the same kind of course the other situations gonna be if somebody's on a long flight maybe four hours and they get tired of wearing a mask after see our one they take that mask off then it can be left up to the flight attendants can resolve the on board situation because you know the minute somebody does that other than you're eating or drinking that can be brought to the attention of the a flight attendant and they're going to be the ones that are going to have to kind of resolve the situation quickly how J. did those flight attendants feel about this mandatory mass requirement since they would have to police said they love it in fact back in February the flight attendants union was trying to get the airlines they work for to give them permission to wear gloves and masks during the in flight service the airlines at that point time certain though even though a lot of international carriers were already doing that very slow where the U. S. carrier stick to grant permission and they finally did two US flight attendants and they have been pushing for mandatory mask as well for passengers saying that you know we're doing more to spread the disease then we are to really container so airlines have done a couple of things they're basically granting those on the flight attendants there wish with regards that they're also coming up with the blocking.

"Of a test market I think for every other sport and see what happens all right got it covered is at it yet we thank you so enter today right good morning to you hello J. hello Austin where's Jay Jay Ratliff right in here that is what I got to now Jay there I am here FAA scales back air traffic control towers and I guess for obvious reasons have more than a hundred air traffic control towers in terminal basically the the personnel are going to be a reduced late this month obviously to limit X. employees exposure to the coronavirus and especially because of the fact that we're seeing unprecedented you know drop off in the flight activity especially in the evening and overnight hours so my it's not unexpected probably the timing you would have thought it would be dental but before now the cove it issue with some air traffic controllers to know yeah they got hit yeah early on my great they did as well and but you know they're kind of the last line of defense if you will for for the air traffic control system so you know part of me understands why it's being done you know mid to late April as opposed earlier than this but yeah because I guess you never know when things it might have sprung back but obviously that's not happening yeah hi flight attendants urging Americans at least for leisure purposes not to fly the association of flight attendants basically want to Americans to fly as little as possible during the corona virus and they say that basically all leisure travel until the the payment M. because it brought under control basically the feast there also pressing the government to issue all airports air travelers disposable masks that they say are much more effective than anything I mean the whole made mass normally they try to limit the the spread of the virus and again they say they should be free to all members of the public is they basically enter the airport and as people travel they should be worn at all times except when you need to maybe prove who you are and for for food and drink but that's the latest request to the flight attendants and no more we have United front here right now the flight attendants that are told to wear their masks during the time non duty crisis affected the airlines will quickly follow suit and as we can continue we may see airports requiring some sort of mass for people inside the airport yeah all right what's the weather look like Minneapolis and Chicago with the rain and wind respectively looking at delays approaching an hour all right thank you Jay and time for the bits you know what makes me sick No.

"Ways today more of our discussion with Jay Ratliff on the night cap on seven hundred WLW we will get in trouble for this interview tonight because I've been told by the the powers that be here and I heard maybe we should we should not be engaging in conspiracy theories and I I am no Alex Jones this is not info wars and I'm not going to engage in any kind of discussion about why this has been thrust upon us and why we have been made to panic and driven to our knees by something that may be no worse than the usual flu or influenza in this country and certainly not as bad as the number of suicides the number of drug overdose is heart disease accidents I'm not it's it's the numbers are pretty clear yeah all the expert just talk to us J. about the numbers and the projections the false data that they said they were relied on for the shutdown I'm just telling you that and and I I don't think like I'm a I'm a rebel rouser here at all I believe in the constitution United States of America I believe in our bill of rights and they have been trampled on so much I wonder is it all for not or or what is the greater purpose of all this that's what I wonder I'm not suggesting anything I'm just wondering aloud and shouldn't we be able to wonder aloud as to why we're being subjected to this nonsense yeah and you know the thing that I I didn't even think of until it was mentioned by law enforcement and others of having you know kids cooped up in the family scooped up is the the families that have abusive issues wives kids whatever might happen today and those individuals are normally discovered through a third party you know is the kids wife husband whoever might be that Smith's being abused it is out about somebody knows it is reported is investigated in the people responsible are brought to justice any idea now that we're putting some of these people at risk was something that I I didn't even really think of one all of this began so I'm thinking it's about the business owners who may or may not be able to recover from this you know that the put their their careers their lives everything their dreams and passion into creating a business that of the government said you gotta shut it down you have to shut it down now the chance to prepare no no indication that it was coming something that literally came almost out of nowhere and blindsided us but there's so many people being affected by this I'm here there's a mental health expect all of this there's so many other things that are I think affecting our country and I think it's going to be years and years and years before we can look back and adequately measure how many different things the fact that it's easy to look at the economy and how it's been hammered in the brutally so right but the psychological toll on families and you talk about domestic violence and how those numbers are more than likely and we don't have all the the numbers yet but those are spiking as well with people trapped in situations they simply cannot get out of by edict of the government itself now right and I wondered and yet you're right there's seems to be a certain amount of glee with the power that comes with this yeah I don't I don't see I see a lot of smiles a feline laughter I see things and thinking wait a minute if this is a crisis this is nothing to laugh about when you talk about people's lives and businesses and everything else that you have and yet so many people that are out of work right now you know they're getting a stimulus they were they're getting this they're getting mad at us as a one time deal in some regards in the universe and we're gonna be going to be looking at the need for another round the airlines you know this week to get their huge fifty some male trillion dollar billion dollar handouts with regards to things that they have seventy percent of grant the twenty thirty percent or so that they're gonna have to pay back is this gonna help him now but here's the thing goes on for months and months and months okay and what I hear people talk about eighteen months here I'm thinking now absolutely not I mean you can't keep going shut down or throttle back fifty percent an engine how much of this is based on people like Anthony found G. endeavor Burke saying well yeah it looks like we're near the curb but wait for the second wave in and we really won't be back to any kind of sense of normalcy until there's a vaccine in that we already know the vaccine takes twelve months to eighteen months to go through all the trials and be approved and all of that when there are absolute thousands of people who've been treated with drugs like hydroxy caloric win and it's been almost ignored by the mainstream press and by the people of these corona virus taskforce briefings even though you've got one of the greatest epidemiologist in the world world renowned in France who's done a study of more than one thousand people with ninety one point seven percent success rate of reading people of the corona virus this particular model within ten days with the treatment of hydroxy clerk when the Z. pack and sank and the only people that died in his study we're all seventy five to ninety years old with underlying medical conditions yep otherwise it's been effective almost out of hand every single patient I think without you in late January it comes very project no no you could I was gonna say I thought it was about you the P. towards the end of January but at a at a conference he was asked to ask about the corona virus and he was confident he would never hit our shores yeah so when he tries to give me project projections based on his thought I'm thinking wait a minute if we were so far wrong van just a few months ago why in the world should I hold anything you say but even though he's an incredibly intelligent man more more telling J. more telling than that and I've got the paper right here as speech at Georgetown just nine days before Donald Trump was inaugurated as our forty fifth president then director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases Anthony S. Fauci MD the same guy that we see every day in the president's briefings said that the president will be confronted the new present will be confronted with a surprise infectious disease outbreak during his presidency this was in twenty seventeen J. I've got I've got the documentation right here what George Bush president George Bush in two thousand five yes new was coming and he wanted to get it as prepared as much as he could got things rolling and they kind of stopped with the Obama administration but I mean I think million in fact some of the things that bush did during the last three years of his administration were dismantled by the Obama administration yeah also one question from when president trump says that the cupboard was bare he's not kidding call now it was not in and I just yeah I was on a conference call today with the sum of grammar county health officials is a public forum kind of thing and one of the points that I was trying to make is that regardless of you know where this thing goes after the fact we have to make sure that our frontline medical schemes nursing homes hospitals what have you don't have a supplies are running out in two weeks and three weeks I mean when I see people in China head to toe you know in a fully covered uniform yes it's designed to protect them in the our nurses with a mask and goggles can death yet I'm thinking is there's there's no way and you know we're so bad about preparing for the next emergency we always like to react to what's going on the FAA does that a lot in aviation yeah I just to me I I just I'm just hopeful stuff praying that we get ahead of this so that we we build up the reserves we have things were not so dependent on other countries to give us the medicines in the supplies that we need during a medical crisis such as this where you know it takes you know three months to get something that you need last week J.

Kobe Bryant helicopter crash: Aviation expert explains what will happen during investigation
"Yesterday morning something tragic happened with Kobe Bryant his daughter and the other well Kobe Bryant and the other eight souls that were on board a lot of people are not actually talking about the other victims that were on board the helicopter yesterday and stand by because our aviation expert J. rattles gonna join me because we're going to go the the angle of the helicopter and what they were flying in yesterday John al Altobelli who is longtime baseball coach at orange coast college was on board his wife Kerrey their daughter Alyssa harbor day schools girl basketball coach Christina Mauser and Peyton Chester a middle school student and mother Sarah so Chester's Peyton Chester's mother Sarah was on plus of course the pilot I believe it's pronounced ara the boy in in all of those people also died and a lot of people yesterday were saying why aren't the talking about these people yet and they were trying to notify next of kin I think which is part of what I actually read but I just thought it was I just thought it was you know proper to to talk about those people as well because they all lost their lives and think about between all of these people that died during this accident how many lives were affected yeah it's horrible you know think about it's crazy we're talking a lot of lives affected one of the women on there the dad who was not on the flight was talking about how he has he's left now with three kids to raise he was on the today show so and he was like coming in to do this so I mean these are a lot of families these are a lot of people that were on that flight yeah it's horrible yeah it's devastating especially when you think about the kids that you know Kobe left behind and and everything as well so gosh there's obviously no way around just how horrible the whole situation is what is interesting is the helicopter that they were flying in a let's get some perspective on that and welcome in aviation expert Jay Ratliff J. welcome to the mark laser show my pleasure to be here which we had a more pleasant topic to discuss my friend I believe the helicopter that Kobe and the eight other souls that were on board is Sikorski is that how you say it got back that that this course you're S. seventy six it was a in for him is get like his mini van parked outside because he use it to commute pretty well everywhere but this thing was designed to think back in the early nineties as a vehicle to get the cruise on and off the oil rigs in the middle of you know the water and it's you know a rugged rugged aircraft in me communities around the country use it as their air ambulance which of course are things you have to be absolutely committed to and and something that is is a workhorse in itself so that this was nothing more than just just incredible piece of machinery and of course people look at that table why would a crash then well there's a lot of reasons why it could happen or the beginning of what's going to be a very long investigation is of the NTSB tries to find out exactly what happened so right now the initial reports are the heavy fog in the area and I think I saw a report yesterday from the sheriff's office in that area that their actual aircraft were grounded during that time because of due to the heavy fog at least that's what I saw one report yesterday and I know it's all speculating at this point but is could this really be something as simple as the fog was so heavy that all my gosh there's a mountain in front of me too late boom it could be but you're talking about an aircraft that is incredibly sophisticated that has everything on it including you know basically the the ground you know what a terrain warnings and everything else that's their right it it's giving you all the information that you need Hey when you have automatic direction finders you've got all the ground proximity warning system you have all the things it's incorporated in this state of the art fourteen million dollar whatever was aircraft hi I don't think I would consider it likely but look we we don't know what happened I'm listening to the press yesterday dues what they do they're calling me asking me for things and they're wanting to know okay when this week we will you know what happened and I said we won't that this investigation is at the beginning of what could be an eight to twelve month process they will begin the process of this very very long investigation I think eighteen or twenty agents on the ground right now we may get an initial report in a week or so but there's nothing that's going to be conclusive until that report pulls out it could be eight ten or even twelve months we're talking to Jay Ratliff our aviation expert here at six ten WTVN and the Sikorsky S. seventy six that is the helicopter the aircraft that Kobe Bryant and his eight passengers the eight souls in addition to him that were on board does it have a black box you know black boxes look let's say on a commercial airliner there's two of him they're not black or gray painted orange so you can find a man in a debris field easy enough and on a commercial airliner you have what's called a flight data recorder that records all the flight data this going on speed altitude headings course corrections blah blah blah the second black box is a call to CVR cockpit voice recorder the basically records the conversations that are going on in the flight deck as well as any alarms or anything that might be going on there this particular helicopter has an avionics package which includes the cockpit voice recorder not a flight data recorder is I understand I've not heard yet from the people that I've been talking to close to the scene on whether not this aircraft had a cockpit voice recorder but if it did once recovered it will certainly provide some needed insight for the investigators and they cannot start to answer three thousand questions with regards to what happened and what's the sequence of events that could fall give contributed yes could the pilot who had a heart attack yeah could there be a mechanical problem very well could have been is a possible because they have to look into this unfortunately was the pilot under the influence of anything medical you know prescription drugs or alcohol recreational drug all of these things are going to be looked at as possibilities was it pilot error was or something completely male unexpected that happened to the aircraft as far as it hitting a drone we we don't know any of these things and we won't till the investigation continues for some time and that's why when I hear all this talk about what the probable causes are I'm just shaking my head thinking it most of the time when we come out with these you you look foolish when you're trying to be the first to say it was this or that because we simply don't know we leave it up to the experts the all star team of the NTSB to determine what took place and we wait for their report so the cockpit voice recorder is that made out of this a similar type thing that the black box if you will is made out of so it's made to withstand a crash or something like that Hey that's one question and another one was if you know you're talking about they have to try to find out if the you know possibly the the the pilot was under some sort of influences something again you that was part of a list that you listed out like it looked to me here based on the footage that I was like how are they going to be able to test for anything it looked everything just look destroyed and burned out but I I don't know how would they do something like that this is this is crazy they will identify the remains and they will have the possibility of extracting enough DNA and different types of things within when you get a degree field it's a hundred yards wide long it's it's evident that the aircraft struck the ground at some speed the the there are some independent flight data this suggested was in excess of a hundred eighty five miles an hour you're very well could have him now again we I still have to have confirmation if there was CVR cockpit voice reporter right this one I know others have it and I would expect given his state of the art is this aircraft was I would be very surprised if that wasn't the case but even if there's not the investigators will be able in time to determine exactly what the likelihood of events were I've been asked why is the FBI

"Wait a second LA X. emergency landing Jeez let's let's listen to this one cut eyes this remaining in our lord's one and boom like backfires passengers reacting after an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport we don't know what was going on small craft fire coming out of the right engine flashes from the engine were visible even from the ground the Philippine airlines flight bound from Manila reporter to possible engine failure just after takeoff the pilot requesting an emergency landing while describing what he called an engine search despite the frightening nature of the incident the FAA says the plane successfully returned to LA acts and landed without incident I'm reading it hi yeah I read I'd say there's a little bit of an issue they've got this plane it's taking off from LA acts of he's cut their camera man that's more than just a compressor stall this things pop in it's almost like it's backfiring and there's flames shooting out the back of the video I'm watching yeah that's a little bit of a problem so you're a pilot yes so I would have never flown anything that big right go ahead just just generally speaking what what would you think it might be when I first saw the puff of flame coming out the back I think it was a compressor stall which is something that sometimes happens with jet engines but this case there's obviously something wrong because it that generally compressive stall happens once it's very disconcerting if you happen to be near that engine because it does make kind of a back fire sound but it's nothing bad but when it keeps doing it like that my gosh this video is so more but it starts with like this little girl that I'm the one I'm watching all others like I have a four year old three year old little girl who's playing with that little fold out brochure that has the safety stuff on it merchants pans over to the window and for our listeners just picture both of the engines on a plane and flames shooting out of the one on the right so I'm wondering if the passengers alerted the cockpit to this happening on couldn't do they have an instrument or so no they get that that the captain knew some was going on because he had radioed back to the tower saying we got to come back problem is when you have something like that you've got you got a lot of fuel onboard right yeah they just took off and they were going across the ocean to Manila just took off yeah and it's very dangerous to re land of these planes because they have so much fuel on board you can take off with a certain amount of fuel but then landing you have to be below a certain weight the problem is now if you're going to dump fuel you can't do it if there's flames coming out of hand my god you're yeah you created a firestorm basically exactly right and so what you have to do that I guess they just have to make sure they don't you know crackle landing here when they came back but while this is incredible here's the thing though you know that plane because the way they said they've certified the seven seventy seven it could have literally flown across the lead at the Pacific Ocean there on one engine now you don't want to do that but they're certified to fly on one engine yeah but if the other one has flames coming out he had this so the shut off the one that has the flames coming out of it and then you can go in the other one okay which I'll have to look to see if they have dig in interview the pilots see exactly what they do but yeah that would be a little disconcerting so when you when you okay no better workers here's my amateur brain coming out you're ready yeah when they landed the plane did they pull the little hatch and make the big inflatable slides come out and everybody go down that I don't they I think I think they actually declined from what I'm looking at the the pictures here looks like as though the video I'm watching it a cut from flame to the fire department putting out flame and I didn't see any passenger so what they give them with with the slides of come out near the fire where the explosions are happening this is where you should do this is where people understaffed understand that the flight attendants on board your plane they're not there to serve you drinks they're served in that they're there to make sure you can get off the airplane safely if there's some sort of emergency like an engine's on fire so if they would do something like that and they would have to evacuate all those flight attendants would say okay we're going out the left side of the plane and they only let you go out the left side of the plan because they don't you going out where the fire fires near the and the engine this is how well trained they are they do this in a moment's notice and this is why they have us there so highly trained you don't realize their line of defense up there they're the emergency personnel that are going to get you out of that they're going to evacuate that airplane that huge airplane in less than ninety seconds that's the that's what I rule amazing yeah and this is what we're trying to them right there they're not here the units are buddy Jay Ratliff for aviation expert who was on yesterday he said it's just make and he's he's been in the navy in aviation industry for thirty years he ran Republic airlines he's done a bunch things and city just incense is Sam when he sees people like snap at the slightest tenant yeah I know not cool I just want to smack him he's like these people to understand how highly trained these folks are right to get people out of the play yeah they're not they're not your your your waiter as as he as a as an executive for the airline he made the other executives and the managers go through two days of flight attendant training good just so they understand what they're what they're going through wow that's great what they go
"jay ratliff" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA
"From Jay Ratliff an ally it all starts at where does it go from here I think that question is simply answer is already been answered by the Attorney General do you did Bob did the turn it did Robert Muller have all the resources they need yes to to do a good job yes was a thorough yesterday have access to everything you needed yes do you feel that he did a complete thorough job yes was it okay now are you is concerned about I am about a rigged in fixed investigation yes I am are you concerned about Faiza abuse and fraud committed against pies accords yes are you concerned about the misuse of intelligence yes are you going to be investigating all these matters yes so now where in a whole new direction this is all over mother is done it's finished this is not going to lead to any impeachment the disaster of what today was it won't and they can't if it does it will guarantee the single biggest mass of land slide in modern presidential history including massive optics and seats in the house of representatives in the US Senate which might be actually a good thing if we can really fix the country elect people that actually have backbones and could stand up for things although I was pleasantly surprised by Republicans today they all did their job they were all prepared and I did have my doubts but they came through.
737 MAX pilot sues Boeing for career damage
"Got word yesterday class action lawsuit pilots a little more than four hundred of them getting together and the targeting in on boeing so we thought it'd be appropriate to talk to our aviation expert jay ratliff this morning ajay appreciate the time tell me what you know about the lawsuit well basically you mentioned more than four hundred pilots that fly the boeing airplane have joined together in a class action lawsuit basically charging boeing with an unprecedented cover up also states pilots suffered from a loss of pay while others were shaken by the fact that they were operating an aircraft with what they're calling known deficiencies i don't think anyone can argue with that and basically without boeing morning eat of the airlines or the pilots what was going on into nedeli are the families of those lost three hundred and forty six live suing investors are suing you have airlines that have purchased the max aircraft which right now are nothing more than super big paperweights in pilots lining up to see this thing i mean to me it becomes a much more serious thing you know we have to accidents and that's very serious but then when you say boeing knowingly covered up the problem they knew it was an issue and that's why these souls lost their lives and why they're having all the trouble with the plane if they knew that was the problem they should be held accountable they do they have problems now whether or not that led to the the you know the death of those three hundred forty six passengers still completely unresolved but we're certainly headed down that path i mean we're member boeing the company that had their test pilots test airplane before they were ever delivered without telling him about some of the safety upgrades involving that impressed system boeing was also the airline that sold the aircraft without forcing the airlines to have their pilots go go through simulator training and didn't even tell the airlines that by the way we have this very aggressive anti-stalking system on the aircraft they did not come forward with that until the lion aircrash and that's when they notified the airlines some of the emergency procedures for that anti-seoul system was not even an contained within the emergency checklist pilots reference during an emergency in the idea that the boeing engineers would tell american airline pilots who were basically saying why did you not tell us was onboard our aircraft and those boeing engineers on tapes that we did not want to overwhelm you with a lot of unnecessary information certainly goes to point out that boeing is if not negligent certainly you know i don't know what you can call it when you see time after time after time of them making decisions such as when they knew there was willing to be software problem and they said well we'll fix that but we'll fix it in three years well of course the line aircrash happened they said they were going to have to do it much much faster yes they were aware there was a problem the didn't communicate it to the federal aviation administration nor did they communicate it to the airlines that we're binder jay ratliff our guest our aviation expert here on newsroom jio six ten w._t._v._n. so how different is what happened with the max jet versus when they roll out other jets i mean have there been other instances whether this flies similarly here are the differences there's some other stuff but we don't wanna overwhelm you i mean is there any precedent for that at all the boeing seven twenty seven was probably the one in the sixties that immediately leaps to mind because it was such a completely different type of aircraft to fly and during nineteen sixty five we had multiple airline crashes back we had to go down within three days because pilot simply were not used to that type of advanced avionics based on what they get flown before they were point where eventually everything got worked out people said they've never fly the boeing seven twenty seven of course once the problems were fixed and the training issues and other things it became one of the most popular aircraft until the seven thirty seven over shortly thereafter is kind of the workhorse of the industry so it's happened before but really it's the placencia of the last ten years we've thank god not had a major airline accident in the united states since february of two thousand nine and i think that that that safest there ever commercial jet travel lends itself to people becoming humanly complacent thing yes on a scale of one to ten or safeties at six and a half or seven yeah we might be able to push to an aid but that would slow down our production schedule things are going well so things are safe so let's just keep doing as we have been maybe trim corner here there and of course that's what's got us to this point in i honestly think that the confidence in the boeing max aircraft will be restored long before the confidence in boeing once we're seeing all of these idiotic decisions that have been made from the top of the organization down to the production line jay before let's roll ask you kind of put your judge hat on you know we've talked about the impact of the max being taken off the table recall correctly you say it's very small small percentage of you know planes that handle routes in this country so there shouldn't be a lot of ripple effect through the summer travel season with that in mind when the pilots come and they wanna sue for lost wages pilots actually not being able to make as much money do they have much of a leg to stand on that i mean have they really lost millions of dollars in wages i collectively they have certainly because of the fact that that's your aircraft that's what you have been assigned to fly out your picking up additional routes or other routes to subsidize certainly think that there's there's support there in the idea in the backdrop that boeing is in my opinion very guilty and a lot of the things that we're we've been discussing i think probably speaks of the backbone they'll try to make this go away they'll do something before it ever gets to court because all that becomes a matter of public record in the last thing you want is a further deterioration of confidence in the boeing macrey if it goes much longer look for for them to actually rebrand remain that aircraft before it takes on a new at the paris airshow airbus was outselling the boeing's that still it's shown twenty one which is the extended range version of their narrowbody aircraft flies farther than the boeing max carries more passengers than the boeing and they were selling like hotcakes because boeing eight airplane to compete the one that they do is still on the ground dag on jay great stuff we always appreciate the time jay ratliff aviation expert here on newsradio six ten
