It has been forty years since the Airline
Deregulation Act was signed into law in October 1978, and the far
reaching effects of the act continue to be felt today. Intended to
remove strict oversight by the government on airline routes, fares and
services, the Airline Deregulation Act fostered competition, development
of a hub-and-spoke system, as well as entry of new airlines in this
“free” market. The decade following the Airline Deregulation Act saw
several airlines both large and small start operations hoping to
establish business in a specific niche market.
In the first of a series of books, Departed
Wings-Los Angeles LAX, is a visual tribute to the post deregulation
decade at one of the most famous airports in the world. Los Angeles was
host to numerous start-up airlines as the result of deregulation, as
well as a strong-hold to major domestic carriers and international
airlines that placed LAX on their route maps. With ninety, spectacular
photographs and detailed, descriptive captions explaining the history of
the various airlines and aircraft that transited LAX during the years
1980-1990, Departed Wings-Los Angeles LAX is sure to rekindle memories
of one of the most exciting eras in commercial aviation.
