    With their airport shut down by the cartel, these Wyoming residents have to drive and drive to take to the skies in Two Thousand Eighteen. They have taken out a begging bowl and forked over $2.8 million to bribe AA to come to Cheyenne-but if the cartel can’t make a killing they will turn their back and it will be back to driving for these hostages.

    Sad, but that's how it goes in these days of deregulation. Airlines cannot be required to provide service that doesn't pay the cost.

    If you want that, treat airlines as a utility, guarantee a small but reasonable profit overall, and require service be provided even if a particular route is a money-loser. Otherwise accept that the price is going to be high to make such a route viable.
