Looks more and more like Wall Street has outsmarted itself. The hubris was incredible. Screw the leisure traveller. What choice would customers have once a tiny cabal was given the keys to the nations skyways? Well less than 2 months ago, It was big news spoonfed to a compliant media that the UAL CEO was buying $1 M worth of stock @ $50. That stock today: $41 and change. Didn't go to Wharton myself, but gratuitously going to war with and disparaging your customers is a high risk strategy, no? A lot of people can think of better ways to spend their money other than hassilistic, rewardless, air travel, a worse than ever ordeal.
