NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Federal Aviation Association's (FAA) decision to suspend all flights to and from the U.S. and Turkey in the wake of the recent failed coup was expected, American Airlines (AAL) former Chairman and President Bob Crandall told CNBC's Sara Eisen on "Squawk on the Street" Monday."It's not unusual for the U.S. government to in effect advise the airlines. The airlines obviously are interested in safeguarding their equipment, their people and their passengers," Crandall explained.
