RE: "Airline" Condones Drunk-Driving

That's totally different, McDonald's themselves served that women a boiling cup of coffee, a disclaimer on the cup and they can never be sued again, same with Starbucks. A&E doesn't have an obligation to report every individual that may be drunk or to intervene.

Yes but when you pick your own airline I don't think you can name your own price. I am surprised that priceline is still doing well because these other sites like expedia are much better in my opinion, I have spend alot of time on all these sites and you really don't save much on priceline anymore.
