Since airline travel is growing and growing, the airports are getting way overcrowded. The solution is to stop airline travel for about 1-2 months. During this time period, airports could be enlarged and redesigned. All major airports would be worked on at the same time. I think that airports should be way more organized. This will cause major chaos among the public. But we all know that something has to be done soon because of the growing delays and industry. If we were to sacrafice 2 months of airline travel, we would not have to deal with delays or anything. If the airports were enlarged and more organized, travel expenses would probably go down and air travel would be a lot easier.

What's your opinion on this solution?

1 to 2 months would just about give you enough time to fit out a new Starbucks and put all the luggage trolleys back where they belong.

That would seriously damage the economy, what would you have those people do while not working earning a living? Many people are just a paycheck or two from financial ruin. Better to re-regulate the airline industry with less point to point routes. I think some re-regulation of the Airline industry would be a more effective and less drastic solution.

American Airlines operates a multitude of daily LAX-DFW flights on their MD-80 & 757s, just like United etc does on other routes. A more efficient use of airspace would be to consolidate all those flights onto a 747 or A3XX type. I realize regulation is unpopular, particularly with business, but given the shortage of air traffic controllers, increasingly crowded skies, disgruntled passenger, we should at least look into the idea. Also, what developing our vastly underused rail system such as the Europeans?

Not only is there overcrowed airports, but way too many underserved as well. Most of them are medium-sized markets. Well, here's a redical idea I've had for a long time. The gov't could help solve this problem without dictating to the majors how to run their business. How? By subsidizing newly formed regional airlines that are based at each under-served market. Each new airline serves only one market. They offer point-to-points to all popular destinations from that market that the majors refuse to fly non-stop. This would rob pax from the majors, you say? That's what they get for neglecting these types of markets.
At the very least the gov't could offer incentives or even subsidies to the majors for flying these types of routes. Let's face it, the Hub-&-Spoke model and deregulation created this animal and the disproportional parity of service between overcrowed and underserved markets. RJs could easily fix it, but unions and airline management are all too stubborn to come up with a solution. While I'm here, I'll tell you my solution to scope. Unlimited RJs to any market that has not seen mainline service in the last 7 years. Competetive feed, no lost mainline jobs. PROBLEM SOLVED! DUH!!!!!!

LB Steve. Your idea about consolidation of aircrafts such as the A3XX looks good on paper, but realistically the public wants more flexabilily in schedules not bigger planes. The public wants to leave there meeting drive straight to the public and board an aircraft. They want options, and flexability.......
