    That CEO should be fired. He has no idea how to run a just in time system.  Either that or he is just playing politics.  I have sympathy for the Pilots Association, however.

      I can't see how this suit gets a hearing. He is CEO of a lobbying group, they have no standing. An actual airline MIGHT have standing, but the questions they want to litigate can't be.

      Congress has sole authority to appropriate funds. Government agencies MUST live within those appropriated budgets (actually they must spend exactly what Congress appropriates!).
      How the federal government spends its funds is up to the Executive, within any limits set in the appropriation (like you must cut current expenditures by 10%).
