ABC7 Eyewitness News in New York has been reporting the story of planes at New York area airports landing low on fuel. On Thursday, the station reported they were given a memo by a Continental Airlines pilot that was sent by Continental’s senior flight operations director to the airlines 4,500 pilots. According to ABC7, while telling pilots that management will "respect their authority and judgment" on how much fuel they decide to carry, the memo then warns that "adding fuel indiscriminately… ultimately reduces profit sharing and possibly pension funding."
