CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - The White House says President Bush is
keeping a close eye on problems in the airline industry that have
interrupted travel for thousands of passengers.

Spokesman Scott Stanzel said Friday that this will be discussed Monday at a Bush Cabinet meeting that already was set to take up such issues as Iraq, the housing crunch and a trade dispute with Congress.

Since last month's revelation that Southwest Airlines flew planes that had missed inspections - a violation of federal standards - the Federal Aviation Administration has stepped up its scrutiny of aircraft inspections.

The result is misery for the flying public.
