If we're in a recession why the hell are so many people traveling by air. I had to fly to Nashville this morning and man was it crazy. On a positive note I'm flying back in about an hour. Get home at 1. Spend the remainder of the day on the bike.
Air traffic is only down 10-15% over a year ago. 85% of bat$4it insane is still pretty insane.
The fun part is, the recently high fuel prices and reduced passenger counts despite constant infrastructure costs means the airlines are trying to cut costs by flying fewer planes with more passengers. They're averaging 75% full. I think the last half dozen flights I've been on have varied between 90% and 100% full...I definitely haven't had the shoulder-room bonus of an empty seat next to me recently.
