  • Washington, DC – In case you missed it, a recent article in the fall issue of The American Prospect highlights that since the airlines have become more consolidated, they have increasingly colluded and acted anticompetitively, leaving consumers and communities with higher fares, more fees, less seat space, fewer choices, less competition, and even fewer routes to smaller towns.  The airlines have even admitted that they don’t try to fix delays because it doesn’t help their bottom line.  It’s time to say no to the airlines’ increasingly anticompetitive behavior and power grab over air traffic control.
