| Application of Black Letter Law to Facts: | In the most simple basic form, a contract is formed through offer and acceptance - Since the Raisin Board’s advertisement did not count as an offer being made on their part, Milton’s sending in the $700,000 dollars to buy the points for the jet is not considered an acceptance of an offer. | Answer: Yes/No … (include brief legal analysis of conclusion)No, a Contract was not formed because no offer was ever made by either party, nor did the Raisin Board accept Milton’s $700.000 to buy points for the jet. Additionally, any reasonable person would realize that the advertisement which was based mostly around clothing would not in all seriousness include a Military Grade Jet. | Plaintiff’s Strongest Argument:Plaintiff = Milton | If a person could send in points to buy anything else, then why not a Jet? If | Defendant’s Strongest Argument:Defendant = Raisin Board | There is no way we could provide a Jet, Much less a Military Harrier for any amount
It is assumed WestJet does not want to hire competitor employees because their work ethic is so off from what WestJet has portrayed in their work force. West Jet had to make a difficult decision on where to be centrally located. They needed to fin a location that would be profitable in fixed costs and in somewhat of an urban area with a higher population for potential customers. Through months of statistical analysis they decided to focus in Ontario. Hamilton is a town in Ontario that didn’t have any commercial airlines stationed.

The stocks seem to be more impound in stock prices. The international context appears to possess the information on high quality standards (Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey, 2011).
Today it takes us about two hours to pack up our clothes, drive to the airport, go through security, and get onto the plane to your destination and of course the hour or two that’s actually considered traveling. Today’s travel isn’t exactly a test of courage, a battle to the death, or the chance to prove you’re not a coward. Comparing travel from a thousand years ago to today’s travel, it’s easy to say that it travel today is easy and travel then is hard, but is travel back then all on its own easy, or hard? Everything that was done one thousand years ago was much harder than it is today, and nothing was ever a walk in the park. Traveling was just another part of life back then, and if you were a knight then it was a large part of your life.
Greg Alter, assistant special agent in charge of the air marshal program says that the 280 number grossly understates coverage by an order of magnitude and the number is 4 digits but wouldn’t elaborate. In a post on its web site the TSA (transportation safety Administration) said it would not disclose the number of air marshals flying each day so as not to tip of the terrorists. He did go on to say that the actual number of flights that air marshals cover is thousands per day. The air marshal program started in the 1970s after a rash of hijackings and was expanded significantly after the terrorist attacks on 9-11. (Griffin, drew, Kathleen Johnston and Todd
Case Study 6 Analyzing Managerial Decisions: United Airlines Discontinuing United Airline flights from San Francisco to Washington D.C is not the best option in this case. In this case United Airlines need to view the calculation to make sure they are accurate and are reported accurately by WSJ.

Individuals unconsciously use marginal analysis to make a host of everyday decisions.
The computerized system for online reservations that are used by travel agents or ticketing offices was developed by the already established airline companies. Ticket sellers are provided more incentives if they stick with the larger companies versus the newer, smaller firms. The Canadian and American airline industries do not allow cabotage (the transport of goods or passengers between two points in the same country by a vessel or an aircraft registered in another country*). Foreign airlines would not be able to fly the domestic routes therefore minimizing potential competitors within the local airline industry. Rivalry among Existing Firms – High The two major airlines in Canada are: Air Canada and Westjet.
