RATEMAKING IN INTERNATIONAL AIR TRANSPORT: A LEGAL ANALYSIS OF INTERNATIONAL AIR FARES AND RATES

This book explains the fundamental distinction between ratemaking in scheduled and non-scheduled international air transport. In doing so, it highlights the importance of ratemaking for the airlines, consumers and governments. The part played by two main world organizations, IATA and ICAO is stressed. The author has concentrated on the legal aspects of IATA's ratemaking function, including some of the economic aspects of IATA's ratemaking function, as far as scheduled and non-scheduled international air transport is concerned. On the intergovernmental level, the book deals with the engagement of ICAO in the study of international fares and rates. On the consumer side, the book mentions one of the active associations of airline users, the Aviation Consumer Action Project (ACAP) set up by consumer advocate Ralph Nader in 1971. Chapter headings in the book include the following: The regulatory framework of international ratemaking; Organization and activities of IATA; Government control of International ratemaking; The North Atlantic battlefield. There is a bibliography at the end of the text. /CAA/
