Follow the money. It’s not just a memorable quote from All The President’s Men, but words to live by if you’re one of the last customer advocates standing.
So this morning I decided to do just that with my good friends at the Air Transport Association, who have spent about $2.5 million lobbying Congress so far this year. I suspect the airline advocates had a hand in hijacking the passenger rights cause, which culminated in a media circus earlier this week. Made me wonder where all of ATA’s money was going.
