Good grief people! you are now correcting grammar from articles posted on this site?I might add to the english teachers posting,look up the usage of the words "has stated"in the context of the sentence and you will find this is correct.By saying "has stated",the statement is time framed to be current,as opposed to just saying "stated",indicating a past tense.shall we go on to aviation news now?

Screw the airlines. All of them. They all took a very short sighted approach at the beginning of the pandemic with a view for only short term profit rather than long term outcomes, and gutted their pilot ranks. Now they are paying the price. I for one, and probably the only one, think there is some wisdom to a return of some level of regulation. Clearly airline management are irresponsible.

"The company's CEO, Doug Isom, has stated..."

Might want to get a proofreader (editor) for the people who write the articles at airlinerwatch!
