Recent news about the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft being grounded by the FAA sparked another surge of media attention on the airline industry. That, in turn, has generated media inquiries to UW-Superior’s resident expert on the aviation industry, Daniel Rust, Ph.D, assistant professor, transportation & logistics management.

Rust provided expert commentary in a recent Consumer Affairs article that analyzed the 2019 airline rankings. Rust provided his opinion on the easiest measures to be implemented by airlines in order to increase passenger comfort.

“In the never-ending quest to generate more revenue per flight, most airlines continue to squeeze additional rows of seats into aircraft at the expense of passenger comfort,” he said.  “If increasing passenger comfort is the goal, then airlines should increase seat pitch as well as install more ergonomically correct seat cushions — especially in the economy sections of new narrow-body jetliners used on longer-duration flights.”

Rust has appeared in many news outlets over the past decade, usually related to air travel topics. His first book, Flying Across America: the Airline Passenger Experience, was published in 2009 and helped launch him as an expert in the aviation field. He has written four other books on the transportation industry and teaches courses on land, air, marine and intermodal transportation on campus and online at UWS.

An Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) Scholarship University, the UW-Superior’s transportation & logistics management program, where Rust teaches, is among the most distinctive and highly regarded programs of its kind in the United States. The university is also home to the Transportation and Logistics Research Center, which provides applied transportation and logistics research, education, and advisory services that advance the economy of the region.
