What’s Going on Here?

And now Skybus has gone out of business. I wasn’t familiar with them. It’s just surprising to me because it’s the third airline in about a week to cease operations.

Somewhere—I think in a box in my parents’ attic—I have a number of those little plastic pilot wings they give children on airplanes. I know I have several from now-defunct carriers, like TWA and Eastern. I wish I’d been more aggressive about collecting these because I know I’ve flown other airlines that are no longer in business.

Oh, oh. Is it me?

No, it's just the airline business. On one of my first trips at ATA, the Captain said, "Don't get too comfortable here--I've got 19 different uniforms hanging in my closet." I thought I had broken his jinks. Maybe not.

So it's you, then?

No, obviously it's just the business. Strange times.
