6. Intersecting runways limit the number of planes that are able to depart and land.
7. More airlines are competing for fewer customers.
8. Customers expect in-flight entertainment for free and no one wants to pay for headphones.

9. Dwindling revenue among airlines.
10. Fuel is too expensive.
11. First class isn't worth the extra money.
