Default Will the airline industry make it as currently managed?

$61 Oil and going up Government layers of inefficient outdated
FAA Air Traffic control management not adapting
fast enough plus loss of air safety mission focus

Hub and Spoke concept dying
Merger Merger Merger
Labor cost's out of control
Foreign airline pressure
Security and terror fears

History Month
politically correct social feel good agendas causing labor cost's
to skyrocket and productivity to fall

airlines, spokeswoman Amy Kudwa said Tuesday.

of trail mix that passengers can buy for $1.

Passengers "are not driven by whether there are pretzels there or no
pretzels there," said David Stempler, president of the Air Travelers
