In 1903 the Wright brothers made history with their first flight. Twenty-four yearslater "Lucky Lindy" flew solo across the Atlantic. Then Beryl Markham became thefirst pilot to fly from England to America. By 1937 jet engines were being tested. Nineteen forty-seven marked the first supersonic flight, and 1951 introduced thetraveling public to the first turbo-jet airliner company, aptly named Comet Airlines.By 1976, the
Concorde
was making regularly scheduled commercial supersonictransatlantic flights, and wide-body jets carrying 400 passengers or more were thestaple of the industry. Airlines at that time were heavily regulated by the FederalAviation Administration (FAA) and other agencies, and subsequently had to adhere togovernment-controlled routes, fares, and schedules.
 
The industry saw tremendous changes, however, when Congress decided that thefederal government should get out of the business of regulating airlines. It was time tolet the marketplace determine airline ticket prices and how often it would be necessary
 
for a carrier to schedule flights to places like Peoria, Illinois, and Fargo, NorthDakota.
India's major domestic airline, the government run Indian Airlines, fliesextensively throughout the nation and into neighboring countries. Its sisterconcern Alliance Air runs on secondary routes covering India totally. Thecountry's international carrier, Air-India, also operates domestic services,principally on the Bombay-Delhi, Bombay-Madras, Bombay-Calcutta, & Delhi-Calcutta routes.
