Guest Host: Marc Fisher

Airline profits are soaring but passengers feel squeezed — by ticket prices, shrinking leg room and extra charges for everything from checked bags to on-board WiFi. The airlines say they’re finally recovering from a downturn that started with 9/11 and continued with the recession and high oil prices. Now they have the cash to invest in fuel-efficient and tech-friendly planes and to improve customer service. We explore the economics of flying as the summer travel season takes off.

Guests

  • Charles Leocha Chairman and Founder, Travelers United
  • Sharon Pinkerton Senior Vice President of Legislative and Regulatory Policy at Airlines for America (A4A)
