Will The 9/11 Events Help The Airline Industry?

Thu Oct 04, 2001 6:12 am

The airlines can expect to see more people flying after the new security measures have taken effect; but less people will be flying. With less passengers, and less flights, we won't be seeing all the delays and cancellations we have seen over the past few years.

The airlines will downsize a little, but a nicely sized airline with modern, efficient aircraft, and fewer employess could actually help the airline industry.

What do you think?

I never said that nobody would fly, what I did say is that we shouldn't expect the record numbers of people flying that we've been seeing for that past few years.

Yeah, but instead of delays on the tarmac and in the skies, we'll have delays at security checkpoints.

You gusy are looking at the short term...in the LONG term yes those events will move the industry foward...it will be safer to travel...those airlines that do survive the short term will run only th emost profitable routes, and try to have the most efficient network, and employment practices...and it will also get rid of smaller, less efficient airlines which may offer good prices, but at what costs?!
