Ah, the 70’s…leisure suits, bell-bottom pants,
Charlie’s Angels, Star Wars (the first one),
Battlestar Galactica (the first one!). There were
lots of memorable moments in the 70’s. There
is one event that shaped our future that many
people do not remember, but should – the
deregulation of the U.S. airline industry.
The year is 1979. You are an executive of one
of 5 new airlines. After years of lobbying to
be free of government control of air routes
and pricing, airlines begin scrambling to take
advantage of the unprecedented growth in
the industry. Air travel will no longer be only
for business travelers and special occasions. Cheap fares mean that everyone can afford to fly. Who knows where the demand will be strongest?
Will it be the Northeast or on the West Coast? What
about the Midwest and Southeast? Maybe even
Cleveland?
Each turn, new demand in the form of passengers
will appear on the board. Some of this demand you
can predict, but the rest? Your competitors have
research departments too. They might even have
computers.
The wave of new passengers increases every turn.
Will you invest in new gates in the right airports?
You can even try to be the dominant player in a
region. Battle against your opponents for supremacy
in this brave new world where there is nothing but
sunshine, profits, and … BLUE SKIES.
