The article focuses on a possible deregulation on foreign ownership in the U.S. and the European Union to help the troubled airlines in the U.S. American Airlines (AMR) has lost $8.1 billion since 2001. A useful alternative to bankruptcy in U.S. airlines are takeovers in international deregulation that would allow foreign airlines to fly between U.S. cities. AMR CEO Gerard J. Arpey has tried to improve the company's performance by eliminating Saturday night stays and cutting last-minute fares.
