THE SALINA JOURNAL Money THURSDAY, MAY 15, 1997 G3 Airlines sue to block domestic partners law By The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Hoping to block a local law requiring them to offer benefits to employees' domestic partners, U.S. airlines have filed a lawsuit saying the city of San Francisco has no right to regulate them. Federal law prohibits local governments from mandating employee benefits to national companies, said Carol Hallett, president of the Air Transport Association, which represents the nation's major airlines. "Airlines have always been governed by federal, not local, laws because it would be impossible to operate in hundreds of communities with different and possibly contradictory local ordinances," she said. The ordinance approved last year goes into effect June 1. T ECONOMY Prices plunge Steep drop in producer prices heartens investors By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The steepest plunge in wholesale prices in nearly four years buoyed Wall Street on Wednesday, as investors cheered another sign that the booming economy is not igniting inflation. Prices paid to producers — from farms to factories — fell 0.6 percent in April, capping four straight months of decline unparalleled since 1993, the Labor Department reported. The tame inflation news left some investors hoping Federal Reserve policymakers will not feel compelled to boost interest rates at their meeting next week. Stocks prices moved back into record territory, with the Dow Jones industrial average reaching 7,351.68 before finishing the day at 7,286.16, up 11.95 points. Heavy demand pushed the yield of the Treasury's benchmark 30- year bond down to 6.89 percent. "There is no inflation now and little in the pipeline," said Sung Won Sohn, chief economist for Norwest Corp. in Minneapolis. "The natural question is how long will this good luck continue." Much of the seasonally adjusted decrease in the Producer Price Index — a barometer of price pressures before they reach the consumer — came from a 2.6 percent drop in energy costs. Wholesale food prices were also down last month, dropping 0.4 percent after a big increase in March. Outside volatile food and energy, inflation was also benign with so-called core rate prices declining 0.1 percent, helped out by declining prices for passenger cars, prescription drugs and computers. Sohn said falling prices may be viewed as only temporary and Fed policymakers could well persist in believing the booming economy — with a 5.6 percent growth rate during the first quarter of this year and unemployment at a 23-year low of 4.9 percent — must be reined in to prevent inflation. "The probability is high that inflation will accelerate," he said. BRIEFLY NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE NH» Dlv.

McDonnell Douglas CEO expects trade war WASHINGTON — A key European official appears set on blocking the merger of two U.S. aircraft giants and setting off a trade war with Europe, the chairman of McDonnell Douglas Corp. charged Wednesday. Harry Stonecipher, chairman and chief executive of McDonnell Douglas, bluntly criticized recent comments by a top European Union official about the pending merger of Boeing Co. and McDonnell Douglas. Karel van Miert, head of the European Union Competition Commission, has called the merger "totally unacceptable" because of the exclusive supply contracts that Boeing has negotiated with American Airlines and Delta Air Lines — squeezing out Europe's Airbus. "It's obvious he wants a (trade) war, and I don't want a war," Stonecipher said. "We're really being denied due process by the way he's behaving." Continental, America West top popularity list WASHINGTON — Continental and America West airlines were voted most popular airlines by readers of Frequent Flyer magazine. Continental won the second straight year in the long-flight category, while America West was picked for the best short trips in the survey by Frequent Flyer and J.D. Power and Associates, the magazine announced Wednesday. The magazine said Continental rated highly in on-time performance, schedule and flight accommodations and airport check-in. America West's top ranking resulted from top performance in several areas including on-time performance, schedule and flight accommodation and seating com- fort, the magazine said. The award was based on about 7,000 flight evaluations from persons who take more than 25 trips a year. Survey: Americans ready to travel, spend NEW YORK — Encouraged by the strong economy, vacationers plan to see more and spend more this summer, according to a survey released Wednesday. Americans will take 230 million trips of at least 100 miles from June through August, up 2 percent from last year's record, the Travel Industry Association of America said in its annual forecast. The TIA and the American Automobile Association surveyed 1,500 people on travel plans and their confidence in the economy and their finances. On average, those surveyed expect to pay $1,112 on their longest trip, up from $1,076 last year. Florida, California and Hawaii were named as the favorite U.S. destinations for the fifth year in a row. Airlines to add three carriers to alliance FRANKFURT, Germany — Lufthansa and United airlines said Wednesday they are expanding their alliance to include three other carriers, weaving together their marketing and operations. Joining the alliance are Thai Airways International, Air Canada and Scandinavian Airlines System. Brazil's Varig airlines plans to join in October. The airlines' combined networks give passengers access to 578 cities in North America, Europe and Southeast Asia and should give the carriers a marketing boost.
