It was hardly a surprise when Glen Tilton and Jeff Smisek announced that the two airlines were engaged to be wed; to become one; to live United.

For one, major airlines CEOs like Glen Tilton and Doug Parker have been espousing the virtues of consolidation since 2001. In the global airline market, their thinking is "bigger is better."

I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel with Benet Wilson, Biz Aviation editor at Aviation Week (and oh so much more) and Morgan Johnson, social media guru at jetBlue Airlines at the ACI-NA Technology Conference in Orlando this past Wednesday.

Yesterday was a day to remember! Bob Konstand, Rick McQueen and I spent the day in Washington D.C. visiting elected officials who serve our airport extremely well. Along with dozens of quailty bonding moments, we had a delightful breakfast meeting with our DC counsel, visited four congressmen, one congresswoman, and one senator. We didn't have an agenda per se, instead we wanted to share the CAK success story with them and to thank them for their many efforts on our behalf.
We were thrilled that...
