OK, your airline is in trouble... deep trouble! You've got some of the highest costs in the industry, your labor relations make the Iraq conflict look like the Princeton Debating Team, and your fleet is aging faster than your ulcers. Who do you call? Steven Wolff? Nah, he'll just repaint the fleet blue and gray, and give himself a huge bonus before moving on. What if we could get Herb Kelleher, Bob Crandall and Gordon Bethune to get together and form a consulting firm that rescusitates ailing carriers. Herb works on labor relations and exploiting underserved routes, Crandall overhauls the systems and organizations, and ole Gordo goes and tells Congress just where to get off! Now all they need is someone with Juan Trippe's vision, and I think we'd be on to something.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.
