GUESTS: DAVID FUSCUS *Spokesperson for the Air Transport Association ROBERT POOLE *Director, Transportation Studies, Reason Public Policy Institute, Los Angeles SENATOR RON WYDEN (D-Oregon) *Member of the Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee DAVID FIELD *Reporter, USA Today (covers the airline industry) Last summer, when delays and overbooked flights were declared to have hit an all-time record, the 10 major airlines promised to clean up their act. The latest survey of airline customer services shows that things have only gotten worse. Now the airlines are answering to Capitol Hill, where law-makers are threatening to mandate service standards. Is there a solution to congestion in the skys or should passengers just get used to runway gridlock. Join Juan Williams and guests for a look at the state of air travel on the next Talk of the Nation from NPR News.
