A4A has got it right with the push for a National Airline policy. Having a extensive National Airline Policy is the only way that we as a US Airline industry can compete with other government backed entities.

Just make sure labor and pilots are represented... otherwise we'll get screwed...

Right on, Snarge. They do not side with labor.

Any industry group is by definition going to be all about industry and not about labor.

In the past that has been true. This time it NEEDS to be different.

The A4A, originally the ATA, was formed 5 years after ALPA, in part to counter labor..... for the airline pilot career.... politics is everything.... time to donate to ALPA-PAC or CAPA-PAC.... get on board....

not endorsing the A4A here, but they do have a good daily news email with all aviation related stories in the past 24 hours. It is a good way to stay informed about the industry:

SmartBrief: airline news - airline industry - commercial aviation - aviation news - aviation manufacturers - aviation industry
