An article in the Lansing State Journal today proclaimed that air passengers should be on their best behavior to "avoid hassles". That is precisely the reason that the airlines should be allowed to go out of business. No more help from the federal government. Any business that routinely treats their customers like trash deserves to fail miserably. How about this approach: maybe the airlines should go on good behavior for a refreshing change! Nothing irritates me more than paying a small fortune to a company so that they can abuse me for a day. Does that really make sense to anyone?
Since the airline industry has demonstrated a continual contempt for passengers, I can only look forward to a day when I can declare "Good riddance, airlines."
