...and they are turning a profit, but I would like to see how much they spend on Preventive Maintenance, and my concern lies there....

Wasn't there a bargain basement, hi value/low-price/low-rent airline a while back....ValueJet, I think......that crashed into the Florida everglades because something very important was supposedly secured by something like Scotchtape or chewing gum or whatnot rather than something heavy duty.

Folk really do like to have it both ways. Cheap but safe, round and square, a cat that barks ...... until it bites back.
