    That may be the tipping point on prices, but what is the tipping point based on additional fees, security theater, comfort on the plane, and all the other facets of air travel that are becoming monetized????

    2+ hours of security would make me consider other plans. Charges for Carry-Ons DOES make me reconsider. Smaller and unassigned seats can make me reconsider. However, things like free bags for using a certain Credit Card tips it back. Polite Airline staff also helps a lot.
