8. They've been trying for years.

Some smaller ATC facilities already have been privatized, but they are still required to follow FAA rules and procedures.

12. It's interesting that the big airlines are for it except for Delta.

"Opponents, including Delta Air Lines, say the U.S. system is so large that privatization would not save money, and would drive up ticket costs and could create a national security risk. Opponents also say technology upgrades would be sidetracked while the private entity was set up, potentially adding years to awarding contracts."

I agree, and I would also offer the example of the DHL- Bashkirian Airlines midair collision in 2002, which was caused in part by the private ATC service's poor management, insufficient staffing and equipment failure. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002_%C3%9Cberlingen_mid-air_collision
