Three people are reportedly dead dead after the Amazon Air flight, operated by Atlas Air, crashed today in Texas.
A search for people who were on board, said "Atlas Ayr" in his statement "Business Insider".
"Our thoughts and prayers with the crew, their families and friends, along with the whole team at Atlas Air during this terrible tragedy," said Dave Clarke, senior vice president of international operations at Amazon. "We appreciate the first respondents who urgently worked to provide support."
Atlas Air Flight 3591 flown from X'stone to Miami. According to by the statement of the Federal Aviation Administration the plane lost a signal about 30 miles south-east of George W. Bush's International Airport. The FAA then issued a warning.
Airline pilots with which Amazon Air contracts reported to Business Insider that their fees and benefits are significantly lower than industry standards. Pilots said it meant that pilots working with Amazon Air had less experience.
"It's a time bomb," said Captain Robert Kirchner, Atlas's chairman and Executive Team Teamsters Local 1224, before Business Crusher a week before the crash. Amazon, DHL and other carriers tend to overload their pilots.
"They do not recognize fatigue from the pilot," Kirishner said earlier, Business Insider. "They think these are reflective people. We need to show them some of these graphs on an ongoing basis." It's about nine percent of the time, we can prove to them that it's a tired schedule. "
