Should customers have voice in airline bankruptcies?

We found an excellent Your Money column in the New York Times with a timely question: Should there be a customers' committee in airline bankruptcy cases, especially to protect the interests of frequent fliers and those who are highly dependent on one carrier for service? Think about that as a PHL flier in case its dominant airline got in financial trouble -- again. Here's the column, with a link to a blog where there's discussion from readers of whether customers deserve a voice in the American Chapter 11 proceedings.
