...they were still around? What would they be flying and where? Would they be a part of an alliance and how would other aspects of today's civil aviation market effect the now long gone 'Sun King' ? A friend (ex- Nat'l employee) and I were discussing this 'what if' a while back in regards to National and other carriers such as Pan Am, Braniff, Eastern, Western which are now relegated to the history books and our memories.
I would be interested in reading anyone's thoughts on this subject.

They had at least one long strike during the 70's that really took the wind out of their sails. When they came back they were never the same in my opinion. This is in addition to all that happened with PA later on. What would they re-equipped with for aircraft? Where would they have expanded and what airline's genesis would have been prevented by NA still being around? Who knows?
