Externalities are either positive or negative effects imposed on

outsiders. For example: Negative airline externalities could

include air, water, and noise pollution. People who are not using

the airline are still affected negatively by the noise and

pollution airlines produce. An example of a positive airline

externality could be the rapid response from the U.S. to Mexico

after an earthquake. The people of Mexico trapped by debris from

the earthquake are benefiting from the ability of airlines to get

people, search dogs, and equipment to Mexico very quickly.
