The author attempts to define the meaning of a subsidy in the context of American Airlines operations, and goes on to look at the various types presently operating. Two main types, air main subsidies and public service revenues are explained and their historical development outlined. A justification for the existence of subsidies is advanced, and future subsidy policy designed to lead away from continued public support, is suggested.
