I get the feeling that not all of it is due to the 9/11 attacks, but even before that, things didn't seem too well. Here in Atlanta, there is talk of bankruptcy w/ Delta and contract talks w/ the pilots union. Not only w/ Delta, but American Airlines, United, US Airways and others all seem to be on the brink - or that's what they're telling us. Is all of this due to overpaid pilots?...A slow down in air travel by the public?...Low cost carriers?...Poor customer service?...Or, a combination of the four? Personally, I have no remorse whatsoever for any of them. They have all radically changed so much that it's sickening. Remember when you could sell your ticket when you had a change in plans? And when there weren't rediculous restrictions for every little thing such as advanced purchases, date changes, and frequent flier miles? Those were the days. I say let them all go under, and let's start anew w/ a more customer friendly business model. Anyway, why is there so much trouble w/ the major carriers?
