Computers also allow airlines to predict with some accuracy how many passengers will actually fly after making a reservation to fly. This allows airlines to overbook their flights enough to fill the aircraft while accounting for no-shows but not enough (in most cases) to force paying passengers off the aircraft for lack of seats stimulative pricing for low demand flights coupled with overbooking on high demand flights can help reduce this figure. This is especially crucial during tough economic times as airlines undertake massive cuts to ticket prices to retain demand. 64
One argument is that positive externalities such as higher growth due to global mobility outweigh the microeconomic losses and justify continuing government intervention. A historically high level of government intervention in the airline industry can be seen as part of a wider political consensus on strategic forms of transport such as highways and railways both of which receive public funding in most parts of the world. Although many countries continue to operate state-owned or parastatal airlines many large airlines today are privately owned and are therefore governed by microeconomic principles to maximize shareholder profit.
Ultimately conceding to reason and democratic rule President Jimmy Carter signed the Airline Deregulation Act on October 28 1978 in the process eliminating the need for CAB approval of route entrance and exit and reducing most of the current fare restrictions. Even those would eventually be eliminated when the Civil Aeronautics Board in its now famous sunset was disbanded in 1985.
If a particular city has two or more airports market forces will tend to attract the less profitable routes or those on which competition is weakest to the less congested airport where slots are likely to be more available and therefore cheaper. For example Reagan National Airport attracts profitable routes due partly to its congestion leaving less-profitable routes to Baltimore-Washington International Airport and Dulles International Airport.
