The fortunate grandfathered carriers were awarded the lucrative routes and enjoyed relative prosperity. 42 These privileged trunk carriers had no incentive to become more efficient and were content with their oligopoly profits. " The classic characteristic of such a policy was quick to emerge: restriction of output as a means of controlling price. 43 Load factors rarely ventured much above 50 percent, in contrast to intrastate carriers for which load factors achieved 60 to 70 percent levels. 44 The heavy regulation of the airlines that began in 1938 had a direct impact on the regulation of airports.
Attempts by governing authorities to manage airports directly proved largely unsuccessful, since such public officials usually lacked the knowledge of aviation problems necessary for successful administration. Even when the public official was a qualified airport manager, red-tape requirements of the typical municipality reduced the efficiency of operations. Better management was obtained at city airports that experimented with appointments of unpaid commissions that would set airport policy. Because of the prestige that accompanied a seat on such commissions, persons of high qualifications and integrity often comprised the board.
