1- For USAIR ? business as usual....or better ..no problem
2- For American ? probably liquidation .T he routes of justifiable value will be serviced by LCC ...and other airlines ...
There continues to be far too much frivolous joyriding at fares below cost by bozos who should be traveling on a bus ... The entire industry needs to be normalized ....with much higher fares to finance new equipment .and , restore airline travel quality from the current cattle car environment ,
There is always the big trashy commuter, aka SWA, catering to every low life from the trailer park. I flew them one time because of necessity years ago, never again. They are the Gov't poster child though they have never gotten any respect. LCC still making lots of profits.
The worthless liberals of Washington made a huge mistake and are being laughed at and trashed by the business community. Let's see if they change their minds.
sweetflyer has it right.....Air travel has been debased , Blame populist derelict politicians promoting something free to buy votes....at someone else.s expense ...in this case ...at the expense of airline employees and stockholders . ... The historic maledictor ? Alfred Kahn
