Few readers of this page would disagree that the U.S. air carrier system is in a shambles and the situation has gotten no better in the most recent past. All airlines are trying just about everything possible to save a dollar here and save a dollar there. There are fare wars almost every day with a continued striving for market share, market share uber alles. In some companies, it seems that each day brings news, mostly bad, of a "downsizing" (or the more politically correct term, "rightsizing") within the organizations. Several major air carriers that had never caused their employees too many worries about job security are now laying off employees in large doses. When will it end?
