So you claim there is less air traffic now than 30 years ago? I think it is you that needs to prove it as it is you that claimed it.
now you are putting words in my mouth, engaging in deception and making false claims to boot

3. There is LESS air traffic today in America than there was 25 or 30 years ago. Many, many airlines have gone out of business in this country
and those in business have cut down the frequency of flights.
air traffic does not equal airliner census
does not equal us airline carrier departures
does not equal Commercial Jet Airplane Accidents
oh look! it seems mr adachi was refering to an observed slump in air traffic earlier in the year.
U.S. Air Traffic Fell Less in March, Signaling Bottom (Update2)
Airlines’ traffic results might have looked better in comparison with 2008 if not for the early timing of Easter, which boosted travel in March last
year rather than April, when the holiday usually occurs.
Adjusting for Easter, March traffic dropped about 8 percent, suggesting that demand “may have stabilized,” Michael Derchin, an analyst at FTN
Midwest Research Securities in New York, said today in a note.
“March was a tough month but likely to mark the trough in this cycle,” Derchin wrote.
To respond to plunging travel demand, the biggest U.S. airlines have chopped seating capacity by more than 10 percent since the start of 2008 by
parking more than 500 jets. They also have eliminated 29,000 jobs.
Delta has said it will reduce international flying by an additional 10 percent starting in September. Continental needs to cut capacity by 5 percent
more, according to Derchin.
The following table shows the largest U.S. airlines, ranked by traffic, and their March decline in miles flown by paying passengers compared with a
year earlier. The figures are from the carriers’ reports and exclude flights by regional partners. Delta acquired Northwest Airlines in October and
now reports combined results.

1. Delta (13.8) (10.4)
2. American (10.9) (12)
3. United (15.6) (15.1)
4. Continental (10) (11.2)
5. Southwest (0.4) (4)
6. US Airways (8.9) (8.1)

1-Although I did not make the original claim, I will allow the Boeing Statistical Summary of Commercial Jet Airplane Accidents to
serve as proof...If you look on Page 15 you can see the departures have risen...
2-Threat? What threat? Are you stating you find the T&C of this site to be threatening? Why?
There have been plenty of threads about this topic. Nearly three quarters have this tired line (i.e., less air traffic) spouted in one form or
another...Each time someone has posted an authoritative source PROVING this claim to be false...why do you insist on repeating it?
I want to know why you are posting false information. What is your motive?

L, like your index finger isn't bleeding from clicking ALERT,
get a clue: the T&C's are not a club to use against other members and the mods Are Not Your Tools, Lackey.
