This guy has been watching too many movies where the corporations are Always the Evil entity! Southwest/Alaska etc, have flights for $59 that's less than gas money to get there!!! I see no Greed! I see fair competition that is making ticket prices today available even to "The People of Wal-Mart" for Christ's sake! If corporate greed was such an issue, that would Never be!!
