Travel Managers Say AA/BA Alliance Would Mean Higher Fares

The National Business Travel Association (NBTA) this week added its voice to growing concern about the proposed American Airlines (AA)/ British Airways (BA) alliance.

In a letter to Deputy Secretary of Transportation Michael Jackson, the NBTA said it believed that the alliance would further damage competition and the already unstable aviation industry, hurting American corporations.

The Association said that business fares have skyrocketed over the last five years, particularly in international markets like London, where there is little competition and only a few carriers. Currently, American and British Airways are two of only four carriers that offer service to London's Heathrow Airport from the United States
