Abstract : This paper examines the recent history and current status of the United States' domestic airline industry. It identifies certain trends and looks at the economic well being of this segment of the industry. The national security objectives of the United States rely on the airline infrastructure, therefore, industry strength has a direct impact on our ability to execute those objectives. By studying the major passenger and cargo carriers, certain conclusions are made about the domestic airline industry's capability, health, and means to support our national security objectives.
