Movie Monday - March 8 - Inside American Airlines

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
Last year, I managed to catch the last 10 minutes of this week's Movie Monday. After seeing that last bit of Inside American Airlines - A Week in The Life, I scoured the internet in search of the program. I was less than successful. Though a huge hat tip goes to AirShowFan for the find. 

This 90min documentary stands as an interesting juxtaposition to Letter from an Airline Pilot, the 1947 look at the operations of TWA, which was bought by American in 2001. How airlines have changed in the intervening 62 years is a stark historical comparison. The documentary looks at all the dynamics of modern airlines including frequent flier programs, labor/management relations, ticketing strategy, baggage handling, fuel costs, safety training, flight operations and perhaps most importantly, the state of the airline business model as a whole. Enjoy!
