Ok, just for the fun of it, lets "pretend" that I am an idiot. Try to explain the difference to me between these two examples.
1) An airline announces that it is canceling a route because it is not making any money.
2) An airline announces that it is canceling a route because of the cost of fuel.
The # 2 reason seams to appear as the cause much more often than # 1. Are they saying essentially the same thing in both examples, but # 2 diverts blame to the oil cos. instead of the airline! I would find it hard to believe even if the route is still making a profit, the route would be cancelled do to high fuel costs. But as we all know this is the commercial airline business!
Ok. just for the fun of it. lets "pretend" that I'm not an idiot any more! John.
