Air Travel in 2011


There's an old adage in the news business: If a plane lands safely, it's not news. That's news to aviation expert Andrew Thomas, a University of Akron professor, who takes a comprehensive look at the airline industry in his latest book, Soft Landing. Thomas explores everything from annoying baggage fees to government subsidies for airlines to the need for better oversight of maintenance to assure those safe landings. The Sound of Ideas is cleared for takeoff, Thursday at 9 on 90.3.
