Airline removes life vests to save fuel

ST. JOHN. N.L. - A Newfoundland politician who is pushing for an airline passenger bill of rights says airlines are taking a backwards step when it comes to passenger safety.

Transport Canada regulations allow airlines to use lighter floatation devices instead of life vests provided the planes remain within 90 kilometres of shore.
