  1. If its American and within 20 mins of the scheduled landing I clap, for American that is an accomplishment !! LOL

  2. European countries are intervening in their airlines because these airlines are unsuccessful. There is little gov’t intervention in USA airlines these days because the sector is highly profitable. If they weren’t, and major cities were going to lose air service, I’m sure there would also be intervention.

    Of course, European intervention is NOTHING like what’s happened in the Middle East. Europe is simply trying to keep their airlines in business, no try to conquer the world with billions in subsidies.
