THE STAGNATION OF ECONOMIC REGULATION UNDER PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL AIR LAW: EXAMINING ITS CONTRIBUTION TO THE WOEFUL STATE OF THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY

While most of the factors affecting the health and prospects of the airline industry result from the unique economics of commercial aviation, there is a correlation between the regulation of international aviation, there is a correlation between the regulation of international aviation services and the state of the industry. Decisions regarding who will fly where, how often, and for what kind of remuneration, form the most important legal issues affecting international air transportation. With this focus, this paper explores the extent to which the present system contributes to the industry's problems. It concludes with a discussion of current measures used to counteract over-regulation and suggests a modest, practicable approach which would build on the existing legal framework using recent advances in international trade law.
