Hello, Dali

In condemning the "big six" airline alliances, TWA chairman Gerald Gitner said the airline industry is turning into "a strange and illogical landscape." Nine out of 10 travel agents participating in my imaginary survey replied, "No duh." The tenth remarked that if surrealist painter Salvador Dali were to return from the great beyond and survey that "landscape," even he'd think it was weird.

The airlines should sell SatoTravel, the chairman of the House aviation subcommittee said in a letter to the Air Transport Association, because SatoTravel is now "competing directly with agencies for commercial accounts." Maybe I'm overly sensitive, but this makes me feel bad about buying my Timberland boots at the Timberland store instead of at Macy's.
