REGULATION OF PASSENGER FARES AND COMPETITION AMONG THE AIRLINES

This volume presents the Ford Administration papers on regulatory reform. In 1975, the Ford Administration submitted to Congress its proposal to reform economic regulation of the airline industry, the Aviation Act of 1975. The objective as stated by the President was "to ensure that we have the most efficient airline system in the world providing the American public with the best possible service at the lowest possible cost". This book makes available a number of background studies and analyses bearing on the issue of aviation reform. These studies are reflected in the five parts and sections of the book as follows: Part 1, Introduction to the issues; pt 2, The intrastate market and commuter airline industry experience-the intrastate air regulation experience in Texas and California-analysis of commuter airline fare structures; pt 3, Service to small communities: the cross-subsidy question-air service to small communities-analysis of Eastern Airlines' unprofitable domestic segments; pt 4, US air carrier route authority and the adjustment to a less regulated environment-analysis of US air carrier route authority-the effect of route restriction removal and discretionary authority; pt 5, The financial impact of deregulation on air carriers-the effort of the Administration's draft bill on air carrier finances-the financial needs of the aviation industry and regulatory reform-the effect of the Aviation Act on air fares. /CAA/
