MGMT 425 – TRENDS AND CURRENT PROBLEMS IN AIR TRANSPORTATION

CASE STUDY – AIRLINE SAFETY STANDARDS OF CARE

Read the legal case Abdullah v. American Airlines attached. The highlighted areas contain the pertinent information for this case study.

Answer the following case study questions:

1. Identify and analyze the main issues of this case study.

2. Explain how ‘local standard of care,’ ‘federal standard of care,’ and ‘airline safety standard’ are relevant in this legal case.

3. How does the determination of Federal Preemption in the field of air safety affect the outcome of this legal case?

4. “In determining the standards of care in an aviation negligence action, a court must refer not only to specific regulations but also to the overall concept that aircraft may not be operated in a careless or reckless manner.” How would the viewpoint that only specific regulations must be referred to in determining aviation negligence have changed the outcome of this legal case?

5. What regulation did the court find that implicitly preempts territorial standards for aviation safety?

6. What regulation did the court use to conclude that there is an overarching general standard of care under the FAA and its regulations?
