FAA Menolak Aturan Pembatasan Jarak Kursi di Kabin Pesawat

first_imgJarak antar kursi 29 inci (Wing Boarding Area) Mempersempit kursi dalam pesawat mungkin memang membuat untung maskapai, tapi tidak bagi penumpang. Bahkan dengan tubuh yang lebih besar dari standar, penumpang akan sulit masuk kedalam kursinya. Sayangnya, permasalahan penyempitan jarak kursi tersebut tidak digubris oleh Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) yang menolak terkait ukuran kursi tersebut.Baca juga: Tolak Atur Regulasi Kursi Pesawat, FAA: Kenyamanan Penumpang Bukan Masalah Keamanan FAA sebenarnya sempat diperintahkan oleh hakim di Pengadilan Banding Amerika Serikat untuk Distrik Sirkuit Columbia tahun 2017 lalu untuk menangani kasus kursi maskapai penerbangan yang jaraknya menyusut secara drastis. KabarPenumpang.com merangkum dari laman marketwatch.com (9/7/2018), FAA pada 6 Juli 2018 kemarin menanggapi perintah itu dengan memutuskan bahwa penyusutan kursi pada kenyataannya tidak mempengaruhi keamanan konsumen. Sehingga membuat FAA tidak menetapkan batas pada ruang kaki atau lebar tempat duduk penumpang. “FAA tidak memiliki bukti yang menunjukkan bahwa dimensi tempat duduk saat ini menghambat kecepatan evakuasi penumpang, atau bahwa peningkatan ukuran penumpang menciptakan masalah evakuasi. Selama evakuasi, penumpang berdiri hanya dalam beberapa detik, yang waktu kurang dari yang dibutuhkan untuk keluar darurat untuk mulai berfungsi dan untuk garis yang mulai terbentuk di lorong untuk membersihkan,” ujar juru bicara FAA.FlyersRights.org sempat mengajukan petisi pada 2017 lalu terkait ruang kaki atau jarak kursi dengan rata-rata pada penerbangan domestik 31 inci. Maskapai penerbangan ekonomi seperti Frontier dan Spirit memiliki jarak terendahyakni 28 inci dan lebar kursi pun mengalami penurunan.Mei lalu, American Airlines AAL, -8,08 persen direncanakan akan mendatangkan Boeing BA, -1,89 persen Max jetliners dengan dua inci lebih sedikit ruang kaki di pelatih 29 inci versus 31 inci, tetapi kembali mengevaluasi rencana itu pada bulan Juni untuk mempertahankan setidaknya 30 inci dari ruang untuk kaki. Selain tidak nyaman, kursi menyusut mengancam kemampuan untuk mengevakuasi pesawat dalam waktu 90 detik.“Satu-satunya cara yang mungkin adalah untuk masyarakat yang bepergian adalah dengan protes publik yang luar biasa. FAA mengatakan bahwa mereka tidak melihat bukti bahwa ukuran penumpang, usia atau kapasitas fisik mempengaruhi waktu evakuasi karena menolak melakukan pengujian yang benar-benar mencerminkan populasi penumpang saat ini dan kursi yang menyusut dan lebar lorong dengan cara yang realistis,” kata Paul Hudson, presiden FlyersRights.org.Tempat duduk yang sempit juga meningkatkan ketegangan di pesawat dan dapat mengatur panggung untuk pengalaman di atas kapal yang tidak menyenangkan, menurut Christopher Elliott, seorang advokat perjalanan konsumen dan pendiri Advokasi Konsumen Elliott. Dia menghubungkan meningkatnya jumlah perkelahian dan pertengkaran yang dipublikasikan secara besar-besaran pada penerbangan ke ketegangan yang meningkat karena ketidaknyamanan di udara.Baca juga: Terkait Masalah Seat Pitch, FAA Dipaksa Perbaharui Peraturan Penerbangan“Orang-orang memiliki lebih sedikit ruang di kursi, tempat duduk kurang nyaman dari sebelumnya, dan mereka bereaksi dengan cara yang sangat mudah diprediksi mereka panik. Ukuran kursi minimum bisa menghentikan konfrontasi di udara ini,” katanya.Mungkin masih ada kemungkinan ukuran tempat duduk akan diatasi pada tahun mendatang, namun. Inspektur Jenderal Departemen Transportasi AS Calvin Scovel mengumumkan peninjauan standar evakuasi FAA pada bulan Juni, menanggapi permintaan dari House Transportation Committee. Dia mencatat bahwa pesawat modern memiliki lebih banyak kursi, penumpang yang lebih besar dan memuat lebih banyak tas jinjing.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedTerkait Masalah Seat Pitch, FAA Dipaksa Perbaharui Peraturan Penerbangan02/10/2017In “Domestik”Tolak Atur Regulasi Kursi Pesawat, FAA: Kenyamanan Penumpang Bukan Masalah Keamanan13/07/2018In “Featured”Kisruh di Kabin, Penumpang Kursi Belakang Kesal Pukul Kursi Depan Karena Bersandar26/02/2020In “Featured”last_img read more


Russell responds to TJ requests

first_imgRussell Tennis Academy (RTA) director, Richard Russell, has responded to an email request from Tennis Jamaica (TJ), outlining steps that he will take to ensure that the selection of Jamaica’s Davis Cup team to the national trials are fair and transparent.Nine players were invited to the squad earlier this year by the RTA, which signed a contract in January with the then Aswad Morgan-led TJ administration. Russell, a former Davis Cup player, told The Gleaner that he offered his services free of cost after he learned that a lack of funding had prompted the local governing body to withdraw from the 2019 Davis Cup.The final team, chosen from invitees Randy Phillips, Jacob Bicknell, Dimitri Bird, John Chin, Damion Johnson, McCoy Malcolm, Roger Lyn, Nicholas Gore, and Cliff Dwyer, was to be selected by a six-member selection committee comprising Ryan Russell, Richard Russell, Leroy Brown, Joey Chin, Nicola Bicknell, and Cecil Bird.Johnson, however, pointed out that the selection committee included the parents of three of those players.In response to the concerns that were raised, TJ president John Azar on Sunday wrote an email requesting that Russell ensure that any monetary commitment made to the association would be maintained regardless of who was named in the final team, that more players be invited to trials to ensure fairness, and that three members of the five-­member committee be from TJ, with no member being either a parent or immediate family ­member of any player in the squad.Russell told The Gleaner ­yesterday that he had replied to the email yesterday stating that as long as there is no variation in the RTA’s two-year contract, funding would be assured and that an invitation to trials would be extended to as many players as possible.Russell pointed out that all Davis Cup players would be selected solely on the basis of winning at the trials.“I confirmed that there was one parent on our committee, and that’s Nicola Bicknell. The ­parents have nothing to do with the ­selection of the team because squad members are ­chosen based upon ­performance at ­trials,” Russell said.last_img read more
