Flying

Flying commercial aircraft is getting worse each year. It is like going to a hi price buss station. The government grants licenses to carriers to use airports and routs. Seems innocent enough but it is actually granting limited monopolies. There is a limit to who can fly where and when. So carriers have 120% of their seats sold and they admit it. Someone who booked ahead of time gets left out each flight. Well if the government got out of it. After the first lawsuit for over selling a planeload, carriers would be more considerate. And if a route were flying full all the time other carriers would fill the gap. Not now. Booked for the day too bad. And ticket prices. I just purchased RT tickets SEA to FAT for $169rt last week I purchased the same ones from the same carrier $239rt and I have been quoted $759 for the same flight before. If I could run an ice-cream stand like that. Oh.Icecream. Buy now and use in a month $1. buy now and use in 2 weeks $2. Oh you need to go this weekend. $25. Somehow it is all mixed up.I always thought if you waited to the last minute and there were seats open they sold them cheeper, oops that is standby. The seat that they did not sell to me for $759 went to a stand by person for $75. and to think I would have paid $239. It is all crazy. Well I fly to Maine next weekend. And more of this smiley - smiley
