    Actually, he/she points to some real problems, essentially a de facto cartel controlling air fares and limiting competition, and denying service to smaller markets. This adversely impacts all of us as consumers of air travel, and is not going to be fixed until enough voters demand a fix from Congress, since Congress is the one who caused the problem by too broadly deregulating the industry, blocking states from regulating it, and permitting a toothless Federal oversight which is, many feel, a captive of the cartel.

    You may accuse him/her of being overly shrill and thus weakening the force of his legitimate points, and I tend to agree, but this *is* a problem and if no one is on the soapbox it's not likely to attract enough outrage to force a solution.

    Maybe he should set up a Twitter account and go trolling?

    It could all be consolidated into single threads so that those that want that type of thing can view... And not multiple threads per day b!tching about the same subject. I blame the owners for not managing the community better.

    Oh, I thought you’d point to the real problem being with mental heathcare or something like that...

    In this age of [alt-thruth] and Fake-News, we are indeed desensitized to sober, rational discourse. Given this climate, it is but obvious that hyperbolic venting, and over-the-top Chair-box (A soap-box but using a chair to standup @ Hyde's Park corner, I witnessed recently :D ) tamasha, either gets attention, or gets frustration and exasperation from rest of us.

    I think I feel no outrage now at the shenanigans of any airline, and am happy that they have not cancelled by life-time status.... small mercies....
