THE INTRASTATE EXCEPTION TO CAB REGULATION: HOW MUCH INTERSTATE ACTIVITY CAN AN INTRASTATE CARRIER ENGAGE IN AND RETAIN ITS FREEDOM FROM CAB REGULATION?

This article examines legal matters (litigation involving Southwest Airlines reaffirming intrastate exclusion; the Lake Tahoe hearings and the De Mimmis doctrine; California-Texas fares; the Chicago-Midway Lowfare route proceeding; reform legislation; and their expected impact on the legal environment in which the nation's airlines operate. It is noted that the recognized jurisdiction of the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) to economically regulate commercial aviation has undergone contradictory changes, with some cases seemingly expanding the CAB's economic regulatory jurisdiction and other cases contracting it. The developing trend, however, is towards broadening the intrastate exception to the economic regulatory jurisdiction of the CAB.
