... ess efficiency. We are expecting Delta Airlines will have some strategies changes if Slugair decided to attack Delta Airlines territory, such as establish a hub in Dallas. Delta probably will change their flight schedules around and give some promotions to lower their price to dry Slugair out of the market.

Southwest Airlines started off as a company with 3 planes serving 3 Texas cities. Today, it has over 300 planes serving 55 plus cities and has grown to become the 4th largest U.S. airline i ...

September 11, 2001 is a day that will not be soon forgotten. The effects of this tragedy reach every aspect of our lives, from the economy, to foreign policy, to travel, and especially airline safety.

With retailers holding excess inventory, it was not uncommon to see titles that originally listed for $60 discounted to the $15 to $20 range. DFC Intelligence Research identified that retailers were most concerned with the difficulty of deciding what to buy and heavy price discounting due to increased competition. In 1994, retailers as well as direct marketers had become very careful in what they would stock. Buyers l ...

When WTO ministers gathered in Singapore in 1997, their business was unimpeded by any outside agitators. (Or, for that matter, any internal dissidents: Advocates for worker rights or environmental standards are not allowed into the deliberations that set the rules for global commerce.) That Seattle wasn't going to be another Singapore was never in question. On Tuesday, though, Seattle wasn't even ...
