erent repair processes that have to be performed. I think they do thebest they can with the cer!fica!on process. Stacey TylerAug 31, 2020#Reply"Hi David-Nicely Done! You men!oned, “The DOT formerly held much more authority over airlines prior to the deregula!on act of 1978, and even lessfollowing their sunset on approving airline mergers in 1989, an act now overseen by the department of Jus!ce (DOJ). An example of the DOT's roleis when Delta and Northwest Airlines were planning to merge. According to Michael Reynolds, the Ac!ng Assistant Secretary for Avia!on andInternal Affairs at the USDOT, "DOT would then consider a wide range of issues that fall within its jurisdic!on, including interna!onal routetransfers, economic fitness, code-sharing, and possible unfair or decep!ve prac!ces" Since Deregula!on in 1978, the avia!on industry encountereda significant loss of nearly $60 million and increasing year over year. U.S. opera!ons encountered most of the lost since 9/11. September 11 had adrama!c impact on the avia!on with the decline in demand and resul!ng in the liquidity crisis, which steered towards billions in government cashand loan guarantees, which is known as a bailout. In addi!on, September 11 created a major doom for the avia!on in regards to unemployment,cu&ng wages and working long hours, not including mergers and bankruptcies. Management philosophy is to work more for less by ge&ng morework out of an employee for lower wages. I have experienced several mergers from American and TWA; Delta and Northwest; US Airways andAmerica West; US Airways and American; and US Air bankruptcy. Thanks for your insight!Dr. TylerCook, G.
