portation Among these were the airlines which have come into popular favor by reason of their speed Now I regret to report it i the airlines that are in trouble financial trouble Their earnings have dipped for sev eral years and in 1961 our 11 trunklines showed a joint deficit of million Barring a sudden spurt of passenger traffic the condition of our airlines is likely to get worse before it gets better The reasons given for this are sev eral and conflicting The ait carriers and the Civil Aero nautics Administration the fed eral agency are of two minds the cause and the cure Airlines put major blame on government Stuart G Tipton president of the Air Transport Association and chief spokesman for the industry last summer proposed these five steps to al leviate the situation 1 Eliminate the 10 per cent tax on airline passenger travel 2 Curtail competition from the Military Air Transport Serv ice r 3 Terminate the government policy of seeking transportation from certified carriers at the cheapest 4 Restrict foreign arilines1 access to American airports and thus reduce competition from that source 5 Put air contract carriers under Civil Aeronautics Boarc Regulation The government agency in contrast views the plight of the airlines as caused largely by overcapacity and too many flights Chairman Alan S Boyc has declared that the airlines have added greatly to their ex penses by acquiring far more equipment than is needed Airline executives admit tha one of Hie causes of their troubles is that more and more travelers are shifting from first class to the cheaper coacl accommodations Coach service introduced by the domestic trunk lines a decade ago costs about 25 per cent less than first class service Coach traffic account for 58 per cent of passenger miles In an effort to check this trend several air carriers ap plied for fare increases aver aging 5 per cent applicable mostly to coach travel CAB authorized a 3 per cent boost for both first class and coach It is estimated will bring of additional revenue a year But these higher fares were FIRST LADY TAKES ELEPHANT HIDE Jacqueline Kennedy her hair p hgh old seat tb Tf fTi u goict seat with the First Lady is her Photofax sister Princess Lee Radziwill The eightfoot tall elephant is painted and decorated and wears false wooden tusks to impress the public authorized for only six months because CAB doesnt consider fare increases as the answer to the industrys long range prob lems More is involved CAB reasons so Airfines have also tried called promotional fares such as shuttle service between New York and Boston and between New York and Washington Un der this plan no advance reser vations were required These promotional efforts have only served to hold down the hoped for revenue increases One solution advanced by the airline industry is the same as that sought by re sort to mergers A plan to merge American and Eastern Air Lines however was greeted by a burst of protest from mem bers of Congress labor leaders and officials of competing air lines Only two weeks earlier Chairman Boyd of CAB had sug gested that consolidation offered a promising avenue for solu tion of airline problems But so much opposition arose that merger plans were dropped at least for now Theres agreement that the major troubles of the airlines can be traced to the introduc tion of jets to replace propeller
