Following the 1978 deregulation U.S. carriers did not manage to make an aggregate profit for 12 years in 31 including four years where combined losses amounted to $10 billion but rebounded with eight consecutive years of profits since 2010 including its four with over $10 billion profits. They drop loss-making routes avoid fare wars and market share battles limit capacity growth add hub feed with regional jets to increase their profitability. They change schedules to create more connections buy used aircraft reduce international frequencies and leverage partnerships to optimise capacities and benefit from overseas connectivity. 50
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
Air California and PSA Pacific Southwest Airlines for example operating in the Los Angeles-San Francisco market saw yearly traffic figures increase from 1.5 million passengers in 1960 to 3.2 million in 1965. Texas-based Southwest Airlines similarly provided low-fare service between Dallas and Houston and other Texas points. These airlines demonstrated that true deregulation could yield fares accessible to average-income passengers provide greater airline and service concept choice and stimulate traffic.
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.
