Flights by U.S. airlines hit 10-year low - no mention of TSA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. airlines in 2011 operated the fewest number of flights since the hijack attacks on New York and Washington depressed air travel and accelerated the industry's worst-ever financial downturn, government figures on Tuesday showed.
The Transportation Department said major airlines, their chief low-cost competitors and the biggest regional carriers, recorded 6.08 million departures last year. Takeoffs were not that low since 2002, when they totaled 5.27 million.
The above article dances around the 500 pound gorilla in the room. Not one mention of how the TSA molesting air passengers might have something to do with a downturn in business.
