Subject: IATAN i.e. "THE AIRLINES" Let's add to a monopoly


      Anyone who has ever read the contract between the Airline Reporting Corporation "ARC" and IATAN that a retail travel agent must sign prior to being able to sell airline tickets, is well aware that this is just another move by the air carriers to dictate to the world how it will buy or sell travel.  The airlines have been granted "by the people of the countries they serve" a Certificate of Public Connvenience and Necessity.  Now I'm truly sure that very few people would consider anything about the Airline Industry Connvenient today.

By giving them yet one more tool to control other travel companies and industries you would allow a The Air Cartell to control markets and set pricing without any supervision by "WE THE PEOPLE".

Next we could let Ford Motor Company issue driver's permits.

The Net will work just fine without the help of a Friendly Sky or Double "A" Double Cross.

The airlines are not doing a good job keeping up with their own problems...why should we let them create more for Net users.
