DISCUSSION PANEL REPORT: DOMESTIC AIRLINES

The workshop panel on domestic airlines consisted of airline representatives, consultants, academics, and government officials. In forecasting the future of domestic airlines, the panel found the following: Air travel is expected to continue to grow two to three percentage points faster than the Gross Domestic Product in upcoming years. Air travel will become more attractive relative to over-the-road travel. As deregulation approaches its third decade, there is ample room for optimism about the short-term outlook for domestic aviation. Although the long-term outlook remains uncertain, the prognosis is improving. After a tumultuous decade of transition, major airlines are exhibiting an unprecedented ability to cut costs and respond swiftly to the changing times.
