It wasn't killdated when it was put into the automation system. If it 
had been killdated, you would have heard no forecast, which, IMHO, is 
preferable to a week-old forecast.

Two people are responsible for what you heard:

1) The Operations Manager, for not insisting that the staff killdate 
all limited-life files.
2) Whichever air staff member is responsible for putting in the 
weekend forecasts.
