Airline Traffic Declines 10% Since War in Iraq Began

Airline Traffic Declines 10% Since War in Iraq Began

Quote:
Passenger traffic on U.S. airlines since the war with Iraq began is down more than 10% from the year-earlier period, according to internal industry numbers, and with bookings for future trips plunging, governments in the U.S., Canada and Europe all moved closer to propping up air carriers Tuesday, Wednesday's Wall Street Journal reported.

The systemwide traffic figures, the first snapshot of the impact of war at the nation's airports, are in line with the capacity cuts announced by airlines, which have varied from about 6% to 14%, depending on the carrier. Traffic in the days leading up to war was down 3% to 5%, industry officials said. Though modest, any drop from last year's very weak traffic represents more pain for a devastated industry.

I guess this will enable more cutbacks on in-flight service

It could just be a byproduct of dbaker's reduced travel due to his flight training.
