As someone who works in and around the halls of power in Washington, I can assure you that airlines, like most other interest groups, give their support to incumbents of both parties. Their contributions will slightly favor the majority party. When Democrats were in power, they got the edge. Now that Republicans are in power, they favor Republicans. Business is business and they have to work with both sides.
