Robert Kuttner has been beating the drum seeking to re-regulate the airline industry for years. He takes whatever the latest news story is as a hook for his cause. In 2009 he argued that safety meant we needed to undo deregulation even though airlines are safer than they’ve ever been, and deregulation didn’t take the government out of overseeing airline safety at all.
Now he’s back completely misrepresenting the industry he wants to regulate, with solutions that he even admits would ban low prices and force airlines to travel with empty seats.
