The Future of Commercial Aviation – Part One – January 15, 2010

This week I will begin the series on “The Future of Commercial Aviation” and will highlight a few facts about the success of, or lack of success -- Deregulation. This will be a three-part series and it is going to be difficult for me to keep it balanced based on my personal biases. However, I am not a Boeing salesperson. I am an aviator who is watching the industry self destruct. As always, I would like all aviators to connect with their roots and one of the ways they can do that is by using the “Third Dimension Blog” as a resource.

The Low Cost Carrier – Part Two – September 11, 2009

The Low Cost Carrier, LCC, and the basic points of what make it work for now ---this is the topic for today. I recently read in the WSJ that an analysis of all of the LCCs quarterly/yearly earnings show they are losing money and the slugfest between Southwest and US Airways is troubling for them; however, if there were no issues for them to write about they would be in trouble.
