The reviewer from Publishers Weekly states: (in quotes) McGee sides with critics who call for some reregulation to improve passenger experience and airline safety, and stabilize business operations. Duh! ! ! ! Carter deregulated the airlines and trucking, and Reagan and Clinton followed with ever more deregulation. Of course such an industry requires regulation, just as Wall Street must have it, yet doesn't - - for EXACTLY the very same reasons. Until those reasons are addressed, this is yet another exercise in futility.

William J. McGee's latest book: Attention All Passengers is chilling, to say the least. It covers topics of interest to anyone who flies. And who doesn't? Among the things I learned is that small domestic airlines now carry most passengers in the U.S., but they aren't subject to the same regulations as the majors. A real eye-opener!

An eye-opener on corporate greed and the shady business decisions in the airline industry, which go beyond the extra fees and lousy service. Somewhat disturbing to find the problems detailed inside only come to light when an accident happens.
