    AFTER EVERY FLIGHT, PILOTS FILL OUT A FORM CALLED A GRIPE SHEET, WHICH
    CONVEYS TO THE MECHANICS PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WITH THE AIRCRAFT DURING THE
    FLIGHT THAT NEED REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

    THE MECHANICS READ AND CORRECT THE PROBLEM, AND THEN RESPOND IN WRITING ON
    THE LOWER HALF OF THE FORM WHAT REMEDIAL ACTION WAS TAKEN, AND THE PILOT
    REVIEWS THE GRIPE SHEETS BEFORE THE NEXT FLIGHT.

    NEVER LET IT BE SAID THAT GROUND CREWS AND ENGINEERS LACK A SENSE OF
    HUMOUR.

    HERE ARE SOME ACTUAL LOGGED MAINTENANCE COMPLAINTS AND PROBLEMS AS
    SUBMITTED
    BY AMERICAN AIRLINES PILOTS AND THE SOLUTION RECORDED BY MAINTENANCE
    ENGINEERS.

    S: CANNOT REPRODUCE PROBLEM ON GROUND.
