    So bigger planes would mean fewer flights between destinations (and probably would undermine price fixing and collusion efforts). Therefore the airlines sell more flights, smaller planes and often sky high fares. And everything is driven through hubs. This is one reason that at the first sight of a cumulus cloud over ORD, 1.200 flights are cancelled. The aircartel has made lab rats of us all so they can line the pockets of the already obscenely well off.
