I say it all the time (as an airline employee): This is what "low cost" looks like. When the industry was regulated it was steak and lobster in First Class and free drinks (booze) and pretty young women in elegant (or revealing) uniforms. Let the giant hand of the free market have its way and every little thing becomes a cost that must be controlled--or somehow passed on to the customer. These niggling little charges add up baby! A dollar here, a dollar there and pretty soon we're talking real money! We demand cheap air travel while at the same time feeling entitled to some higher level of pampering and comfort akin to the old days. But air travel has gone from glamourous to democratized--made accessible to the masses thanks to carriers like Southwest and Spirit. Don't despair, the free market has spoken so throw on your shorts, tank-top and flip-flops and fly to Vegas for the weekend! It's what low-cost looks like!
