Forbes article about the Star Alliance

Check out this interesting Forbes article which responds to Captain Wallach’s May 23 article about US airline industry jobs being lost due to alliances.

I think Captain Wallach is way off base for the reasons stated in the article by Mr. Swelbar. The only point I agree with Captain Wallach on is the Aer Lingus deal, which I think is an awful idea, but more for business reasons than losing jobs. The fact is that the industry has to become more efficient in order to survive.

(Tip of the hat to reader Paul for sending in the article)
