Surly Skies

This article is part of a 14 page special report and discusses the issues facing the airline industry, ranging from the low cost carrier phenomenon to the hub-and-spoke system. Dissatisfaction with the commercial flying experience appears to be at a peak; the hassle at security checkpoints is a big reason for this. Flight delays, lack of capacity and congestion are symptoms of problems that should be addressed at executive and legislative levels. Resolving these issues depends upon national, state and local governments, but airline growth looks set to continue regardless.
