ABC News: Oil crisis was timely

continental-airlines_cut_3000_jobs_retire_67_aircraft.jpg

My father used to call awful, traumatic events ‘learning experiences’ and tell me how grateful I’d be someday for the chance to improve my life. That’s sort of like telling the airlines that they should be grateful for the oil crisis that drove some good little carriers into oblivion, but in a sense, the industry here in the US perhaps should be thankful that it went through its forced diet when it did. The big broadcast network ABC News did a piece the other night in which it sort of took this line. The piece had a very smart reporter, our friend Lisa Stark, and she interviewed John Meenan from the ATA and then she spoke to Left Field. We wish we could get you a link to click on to see the piece, but here’s sort of a written version with some video embedded.

    Hi. First of all – great blog! Secondly this information was also good and interesting to read, but I don’t think everything you have said is how it is in reality. I will need to google about few things you have mentioned in your artcile to make sure. But anyway thanks for taking your time to write intresting artciles and good luck on writing other articles. P.S sorry for bad English, I aren’t English native speaker.
