It isn't there anymore. Sad Story!!

Passengers are the enemy and should be discouraged at every opportunity.

I understand the business side of this. But I seem to remember my company under federal investigation for price fixing. How on earth is the practice of all these airlines colluding to rate/fee hikes not a crime? It's the only industry that gets away with it on a regular basis.

When the all can afford charters. Here's an idea- a sort of crowdsource organization to charter flights. Find 10 people going somewhere at the same time, and bundle into a charter. Go GA, avoid TSA, choose your time to go. Could that work?
Buggered huh?
