    A serious practical solution

    The status quo is absolutely unsustainable
    The concept of giveaway cheap air travel for every bum in the park has brought the entire industry to the brink of collapse.
    The absurd combination of deregulation together with laws prohibiting price co operation between airlines reduced the industry to ruin
    Solution ? There must be government co operation ,,,Fares radically increased across the board..This will force out the customers who can't afford the real cost of air travel....and back where they belong - on the bus....The resulting contraction in total requ ired capacity will unfortunately involve layoffs but but a viable, solvent and strong industry would quickly emerge like the phoenix from the ashes
    To consolidate the package
    AN ABSOLUTE EMBARGO ON THE CREATION OF ANY MORE "NEW START LCC'S" ..whose only intent is to cherry pick the best routes
    If you will..call it REGULATION !
