While the US airline industry’s prices and schedules were deregulated in 1978, there is still a very active regulatory approach taken by the Department of Transportation, aimed at consumer advocacy. Many of the regulations passed in the last 15 years have, however, raised costs for consumers and provided little benefit in return. This class reviews the major regulations made, their background and impact, and then discusses how these regulations come into being and whether there is a better way to manage our air transportation policy.
