About this title

Synopsis:

Two long-time airline watchers - a journalist and an industry analyst - here join forces to provide a portrait of an industry in flux. Their goal is to profile the new industry emerging from the cauldron of domestic deregulation and the intense conflict raging internationally between companies over protectionism and free trade. The book's concluding chapter projects the state of the airline industry at the turn of the century, with alternative possibilities under various circumstances.

From Library Journal:

From 1987 to 1991, the airlines geared up for a boom that never happened. Passenger traffic declined, debt increased, and costs rose. As detailed by Ott, a reporter covering deregulation for Aviation Week, and investment firm manager Neidl, the big three (United, Delta, and American) have been going through tortuous upheaval to restructure after the models of Southwest, ValuJet, and Comair, which concentrate on short routes, low costs, and low fares. The continuing efforts of USAir, Continental, and Northwest to restructure, contain costs, and develop worldwide alliances are also presented. The authors conclude by highlighting the breakup of Russia's Aeroflot and discussing the future of aircraft technology through corporate and government partnerships for supersonic transport and superjumbo development. Distinguished by its good coverage, this book provides more detail than most general readers would generally encounter?and they'll be glad to read it here. For collections dealing with aviation and/or business.?William A. McIntyre, New Hampshire Technical Coll. Lib., Nashua
