    We are already seeing some of these, at various levels.

    UA is really pushing the E+ seating, but as two 1K's, we get that already - still, there are always copious ads for it.

    In PHX, we are seeing fewer US flights, and smaller, and smaller planes, heading to the LAX, or SFO hubs.

    Some of the others have not hit us yet, but likely will.

    Thanks,

    Hunt

    You would think that airlines would start offering more perks for booking with they directly like free bags or something to off set the cost of third party sites.

    I think the worst part is the sardine issues and tiny seats. Many people say that don't mind the tiny seats but they are also 5'1" and 100 pounds so I guess it's perspective.

    Oh and on small airports, coming from ex-hub STL I can see the future MSP, MEM, PHX, PHL, etc. etc.
