Comes a story in the business mag about everyone’s favorite topic, the Wright Amendment:
[T]he vagaries of power in the nation’s capital, combined with airline industry turmoil, has forced American to accept a painful compromise rather than face the prospect of losing a Capitol Hill showdown with a bitter rival. “We’re fatalistic about it,” says American lobbyist Dan Elwell. “Let’s get on with making this a better airline going forward than expending a lot of effort fighting this.”
The most curious thing about the story is its timing and that it really brings nothing new to the table.
