More like the abundance of unbundled fares. What did people expect when aviation became yet another form of mass transport.
So this Delta flight is consistently priced (very lowest) at $615 for "basic economy" and exactly $120 more ($735) for "economy". Obviously, the same seats can be much more for weekends and close in bookings.
So you believe that $120 savings introduces a new and lesser behaved stratum of humanity to the gentile world of flying?
Was the offending pax flying to Paris to attend a back-alley tattoo festival? Or perhaps to run a sidewalk 3 card monte hustle?
PS - aviation is mass transport, and has always been for our lifetimes. full stop. feel free to buy your own plane if you object to this concept.
I didn't say I objected to it, I was merely pointing the obvious. As aviation became more and more popular (by becoming more accessible) there is great chance of having incidents. I don't see what's so shocking about this statement. After all, there isn't a week that passes by without some sort of drama in the plane.
in response to " Why do some people have to become animals when they fly." you wrote "More like the abundance of unbundled fares. What did people expect when aviation became yet another form of mass transport."
clearly, you suggest that low fares ("unbundled fares") are responsible for animal like behaviour. you suggest that flight as "mass transport" is also to blame.
you say this is "obvious".
None of this is obvious to me. Nor is the attire of the flying public obvious to me as any kind of indicator or cause of poor behaviour (something you are also oddly fixated on).
Whats obvious to me, is that promotion of alcohol sales and consumption in airports, on planes is a terrible mix, and always has been. That, far more than cost of travel, or passengers attire is an "obvious" cause.
I've been castigated here on a.net for pointing that out, but so what - call a spade a spade. Take away the booze, and watch unruly behaviour drop precipitously. I am well aware that this will never, ever happen due to the massive commercial drive of sales.
