American Airlines says it does not agree with FAA findings on the airline's alleged safety violations. The airline calls the $7.1 million in proposed civil penalties for the violations excessive, and it wants to meet with the FAA after it thoroughly reviews the findings. The FAA alleged that the airline flew two MD-83 aircraft 58 times in violations of FAA regulations, failed to make timely inspections of emergency escape path lighting systems and had deficiencies in its drug and alcohol testing program.
