We all saw and heard the messes that happened at national airports last year. Too many people flying, crappy weather and bad handling of the situation by the airlines and airports. We also saw a huge increase on jet fuel and airlines started charging for about everything they could. However, this is a new year where the crappiest thing is the economy, so I was wondering if this downturn in the economy will have less people flying therefore clearing up messy airports? Also, how has the price of oil, which has gone low in comparison to last years highest of 140 dollars a barrel affected fuel prices for airlines?

Well, I have a website that tracks airport operations and the trends are very depressing. The writing is on the wall; the age of cheap flight is going away very fast. I think flying will become exotic again in the sense that one will hesitate more and be less likely to elect to fly to family events (weddings/funerals.) However, it will not be the fur-coat type of flying from the 60's, it will be cattle-class for most of us.
