    The lawsuit against the two carriers shows how hard it is to prove what even the dogs in the streef know: the airlines have long been a cozy cartel. Of course it is open and notorious these days. Sadly, this is what happens when lawmakers and regulators are corrupted and in lobbyists pockets.
    Of course these fees were the beginning of the end of FF programs-now the bar is so low credit cards are offered to avoid these nuisance fees-free trips a thing of the past for most travelers.
    Oh for the record the airlines deny this which is comical.
