This is twelve years too late to the day, but I'm delighted that this is finally set to become a reality in the US. That means any Boeing anywhere is gonna have the gear, as will others built there. Hopefully others will see that to sell to the US they need to offer it free, and therefore on all planes, not just ones for US customers. If Airbus will just follow suit...

<?sarcasm?> I'm probably more likely to die driving to work than in an airline as it is. This simply adds additional costs to the all ready struggling airline industry in the U.S. </?sarcasm?> QUINTIX (talk) 14:42, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Which is why it should've been done in 2002 when it was ready and airlines could afford it easily. I think I share that view with one of the sources, too. Realistically, grants should be availible, but they won't be. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 15:53, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Well they could offer some aid to planes older than 2002, but say screw you when people have airplanes made since then without it. Nyarlathotep (talk) 00:43, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
