I came across the attached commentary in the CCC website on the devastating effect that ignoring potential vulnerabilities has had on the Airline industry. Although addressing these issues proactively would have cost American Airlines a substantial amount of money it pales in comparison to the tens of millions that it will now cost to remedy the situation, not to mention the the effect this will have on consumer confidence.

Both of these issues bring to light how vulnerable industries are today and that ignoring potential problems can result in a very costly lesson.
