I remember this. There are many who were opposed to this, and there are many who are opposed to it now. It has allowed me to see a lot of the world I would have never been able to see otherwise, but it also resulted in the disappearance of some the world's great carriers, such as Braniff, Pan Am, etc.

I guess we'll have to let history decide if it was right or not.

AA, DL and UA were all much smaller carriers in 1978 relative to the industry than they are today. There are always winners and losers.
