Airline CEOs To Discuss Aging Infrastructure, Foreign Competition With Trump

CEOs of major U.S. airlines are scheduled to meet with President Trump on Thursday morning. The session comes after airlines had to deal with what one CEO called “turmoil” over the president’s travel ban. The focus of the meeting will more likely be on airport infrastructure, the air traffic control system and what the airlines say is unfair foreign competition. Airline pilots and flight attendants are on the same side as their bosses when it comes to foreign competition, and their message should sound familiar to President Trump. “We should put America first, protect U.S. jobs and strongly enforce our trade agreements,” says Delta pilot Bill Bartels, expressing a sentiment shared by other leaders of the Air Line Pilots Association.
