CommentsThis session will enhance the Future Problem Solving process
by providing information for Future Problem Solving Teams regarding a problem
of study. Individuals with expertise in air transport will deliver information
through brief presentations. This is the second session of the 2010-2011
academic year.

The topic for the second practice problem is Air Transport:

 Airport security continues to become more intense and invasive. Megaplanes
will carry larger passenger loads for longer and longer distances. Budget
airlines offer cutthroat prices that threaten the viability of other airlines.
The competition between airlines is leading to greater luxuries for high-paying
passengers and increasingly complex entertainment systems, which are
compromising fuel economies by adding extra weight to planes. Airbus’s huge
A380 has run into major problems. Passengers in some countries are being asked
to buy carbon credits to offset the environmental impact of their air travel.
The cost of jet fuel continues to rise and planes are blamed for high carbon
emissions contributing to global warming. What is the future of air travel?
Will people continue to travel the globe in such large numbers?
