In our monthly conversation with ATW's Perry Flint we started off talking about the fact that it seems common sense is dead. Looking at the fact that the government feels the need to regulate what pilots carry on to the flight deck simply seems amazing. As Perry says, even as children we learn to look where we're going, we don't need Congress to regulate this. Following up on the pilot issue we discuss the seemingly lack of common sense with respect to Copenhagen. You would think that with the large amount of data suddenly coming out, leading the every ration person asking questions, the politicians might stop to think. But no, minds are made up already. Finally we move on to the possibility that consolidation among US airlines is playing out. Perry points out the poor record consolidation has in the industry. The last two left are not likely suitors it seems. If the music stops they both might be better off without seats.
