    I predict this shift by United and Delta to revenue based requirements will alienate and cause more than just the few mileage runner customers to become disengaged – the net affect will be a wash at best and perhaps negative. It also makes the bar to become “engaged” as a customer that much higher. In the end I think Virgin America and JetBlue may benefit most.

    I read the article the other day. I don’t know why will they ask so many US airline CEOs that question, clearly they have been playing catch up, they don’t have a clue about the future.
    Let me give them a hint, they need to have a global presence in other routes that are not to/from the US.

    I was stunned at the lack of vision in this report. As you say, many of the CEOs stated the bleeding obvious (I nearly spit out my tea when I read the RJ prediction…please.) Here’s a prediction for the next few years – more women will assume C-level positions at airlines (finally), and more women will be invited to the boardroom, because they have vision, drive and Cojones. See Carolyn McCall.
