UPS Airlines Problems List

Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school  diploma to fix one; a reassurance to those of us who fly routinely in our jobs. After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe  sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The  mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of  humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS ' pilots  (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by  maintenance Engineers.*

By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has never had an accident.
