About "Foreign Air Carriers (NEG)"
Affirmative plan removes cabotage restrictions (transportation from US city to US city) in current law that block foreign airlines from doing domestic air travel within the United States. It also eliminates current legal restrictions on foreign ownership or investment in US domestic airlines.
AFF plan is designed to increase competition and investment in the US airline industry and open up more competition. This brief argues that more deregulation and more investment are not what we need and not what’s missing in the US airline industry, and they will, in fact, only make things worse. The kind of “competition” we would get would be foreign governments subsidizing their state-owned airlines to run at a loss and drive the free-market US airlines out of business. In addition, the vital CRAF program (US airlines making planes available to the military in times of emergency) would be undermined, hurting national security.
