I keep reading all these articles about UAL possibly being CH 7 by June. The possible BK filling by AMR and record loses. High labor and fuel costs, war, terrorism, a lack of business travelers paying high fares, new low cost competition for the majors along with higher costs for security and insurance.
I wish I could come up with some kind of scale to judge how much the airline industry is going to change.
Is this the most challenging time for airlines in history? Even more so than deregulation?
I just wish I could predict the future and know what the aviation world will be like 10 years from now. Is anyone else feeling the same?
Are we talking no more UAL and no more ATA, Midwest or America West? When the economy starts to grow again and airlines get healthier will we see a bunch of new start ups?
UUUUgggggg, I don't know what to think, and for someone who has lovingly watching the awesome airline industry for years it just gets me.

I'll tell you one thing, its up to you blokes to believe it !
America's economy will collapse, Israel will rise in power. Which at the moment America is the super power. Soon, it'll have to give way to Israel and We won't have much time left in this world and its going to end.

The future is simple: in a few billion years the sun will die and that will be the end of it unless we have cheap interstellar travel by then and can evacuate to a planet elsewhere, but even that is no more than putting off the inevitable end of the universe which will happen several billion years after that.
