As in many mature industries consolidation is a trend. Airline groupings may consist of limited bilateral partnerships long-term multi-faceted alliances between carriers equity arrangements mergers or takeovers. Since governments often restrict ownership and merger between companies in different countries most consolidation takes place within a country. In the U.S. over 200 airlines have merged been taken over or gone out of business since deregulation in 1978. Many international airline managers are lobbying their governments to permit greater consolidation to achieve higher economy and efficiency.
This article was originally written in September 2011 shortly after the terrorist attack based on the belief that the existing airline security is faulty and can never achieve the goal of providing reliable cost effective and convenient airline security. Those responsible for airline and air traveler security have not taken steps to reduce the inconvenience of the system to travelers reduce the costs but have continued to tinker with the old system without making the fundamental changes that will help guarantee the air traveling public protection against a terrorist attack. A totally new airline security concept is needed to protect the flying public from terrorists. This article was originally written to introduce such an alternative.

A complicating factor is that of origin-destination control ( O&D control ). Someone purchasing a ticket from Melbourne to Sydney (as an example) for A$200 is competing with someone else who wants to fly Melbourne to Los Angeles through Sydney on the same flight and who is willing to pay A$1400. Should the airline prefer the $1400 passenger or the $200 passenger plus a possible Sydney-Los Angeles passenger willing to pay $1300? Airlines have to make hundreds of thousands of similar pricing decisions daily.
