Overview

Everyone likes to get where they're going fast, and no one likes getting gouged by the airlines. In this report, Frontline investigators examine whether or not value and safety are mutually exclusive by investigating the changes that occurred within the airline industry following the February 2009 crash of Continental flight 3407.
