The Struggle to Collaborate (on the road)
Massport contends that the rival services interfere with its network at Logan, raise safety concerns, and violate lease agreements. But it looks like the FCC will side with Continental. FCC Chairman Kevin Martin reportedly backs Continental's petition and the FCC is voting on a proposed ruling favoring Continental. The ruling requires the votes of at least two commissioners, in addition to Martin's, to pass.
In petitioning the FCC, the airlines cited the FCC's Over-the-Air Reception Devices regulations. Massport contends that those regulations do not apply to Continental's service and it has told the FCC that the airline's system has caused unnecessary interference with other users at the airport.
A favorable ruling for Continental will serve as a precedent for other airports and airlines. For the sake of road warriors who are plugged in everywhere, let's hope so.
