Badger is the biggest troll in OT. Never gives an opinion on anything and questions everybody else on theirs. I don't respond to anything he posts any more.

Flying used to be classy. People dressed well, stewardesses were worth looking at. Seats were lager and fewer. Meals were served. Tickets were simple as opposed to adders, fees, taxes, taxes on the fees, fees on the taxes, etc.

don't steal my honors

Actually, seems like a "stiff shirt asshole" to me. Only because he can't joke or have fun in any way shape or form.

****er actually reached out to me for Snowmobiling in Yellowstone info which I gladly provided.

Q: And whose fault is it that seats are smaller, meals aren't served and people dress like slobs?

A: The masses who buy airline tickets based on one thing, and one thing only; low price. Airlines are simply giving most people what they demand. If people really cared about those things you list, Spirit, Frontier, SouthWest, Allegiant and all the other "discount" airlines wouldn't exist, yet they're always packed full.

If you're willing to pay more for First/Business Class, you still get large seats, meals, more leg room, better service, etc. Buy cheap tickets, get cheap service.

The fault lies in the airlines figuring out they can add 20 more seats and soak more money out of a trip they were already making.

Adding flights - EXPENSIVE
Serving food - EXPENSIVE

Adding seats - FINANCIALLY REWARDING
Removing meals - FINANCIALLY REWARDING

If every flight is $1500.00, then a $1200.00 flight is cheap and would attract more people. The entire fare structure was destroyed by Southwest.

If every flight was $1,500 or $1,200 there are a whole lot of people who could never fly anywhere.

And there were discount airlines for a long time before SouthWest.

It appears Badger has bailed from the Detroit Autorama thread. He can't stay away for long.

If every ticket was, and had always been, $1500.00 they would have just as many passengers as they have today. There would be no point of reference.

If gas was always $3.00 a gallon, would there be no cars?

Huh??? If every ticket was $1,500 there would be no tourism industry. Families sure as hell couldn't afford to fly to Disney World. Like any other business, airlines adjust their supply to fit the demand, and they're in business to make money. That's how it works, is that bad now?

If you read the fine print, it's actually shingles. There's a vaccine for that too.
