The article failed to mention the financial devastation that 911 caused the industry. The airline business has been boom or bust in it's entire history. If you add up all of the profits and losses since the first passenger bought a ticket, (the flight was late), the industry is below water. That said, I still like to fly.

Airlines merged, got bigger, with fewer of them and the consumer suffers. Imagine that. Why is it that Europe has a very nice rail system, that works, and we are stuck with Amtrak? I don't fly anymore because honestly, I cannot afford to, and driving is almost out of the question as well, because of time and expense. I guess I will just stay home.

The airlines have been suffering ever since the TSA came into existence. I know they are my number one objection to flying.
