You may have read recently about the US extending daylight savings time by a few weeks, which to most of us seems like a good idea (more light = good thing). Airlines, however, complained (understandably) that throwing us off-kilter from the rest of the world would mess up international schedules. Valid enough. However, I still find it kind of amusing that American Airlines’ CEO came out yesterday and complained about daylight savings time. If you think all of the issues plaguing airlines, doesn’t it seem like this would be toward the bottom of the ol’ list? Again, I’m not saying it’s not a valid issue; but when most airlines are losing hundreds of millions of dollars, doesn’t this seem a tad funny?
Or maybe it doesn’t.
