Not sure. You just switched around the flight numbers so now I'm confused.

Was 4771 the one undergoing maintenance?
"Why weren’t they offered the ability to fly on flight 4771, with the caveat that it was undergoing maintenance?"
Fixed.

Just a slight formatting thing.. You can hit enter after the first line of text to make a slight space before the video. (After the line: " Another day, another crazy airline incident caught on tape: " )

Otherwise, well written and explained.. Now i finally understand what happened.

Also, JJ think it's way too long and should be in more parts. I cringe at 40 part TRs though.
What do you guys think?

Love it! If you it's too long for you, then you clearly aren't interested enough, and breaking it up won't help... Just my opinion. Should typos be put in comments for unpublished articles as well?

:o :o :o Overwhelming, but a great read (as usual) once I kept getting past the "Oy-this-is-so-long" feeling.
I would add BOLD, larger print side titles to break down the info into bite size pieces.  That way readers can skim through the entire post to see what they want to read based on the subtitles.  It is not as overwhelming since fewer sections compared to pages of words.

ETA case in point :
I stopped reading when I saw how long it was...

I don't see the reason to split it up if you have it all written out already, maybe into two parts but no more. One thing I noticed is the pictures which were taken sideways are going to be hard to view from a computer as you can't turn it easily like a phone so you might want to manually flip those in the post.

Interesting, maybe chrome flips them automatically.
