Ugh, and I am pretty much stuck flying American due to the destination I frequently go to. Their competitors charge almost double on that route. Well it might be cheaper to take some sleep medications and suffer than pay for better seats.


Right. People would rather pay less and be uncomfortable, so the option exists. Nothing really wrong with it.

The first plane I ever flew on was a DC-9, built c1970.. it had wallpaper inside the fuselage and the seats were orange, and very wide. I would stay away from AA, and United given their terrible service at this rate. The entire business of buying a ticket is structured around price, but there's nothing forcing you to buy the one listed on top.
My last trip I chose based on departure times, layover times, and then selected by airliner- it usually lists under "equipment" so A321 or B737 is far more preferable over "Embraer" anything. Delta Airbus 321 was the nicest plane I ever flew on to date; comfortable seats, tv screen in each one, beautifully lit interior, quiet as a mouse. I'm thinking of trying Southwest next, as I've never flown on that airline and people say it's different.

They really care about getting more passengers in, so something has to give. The airline industry only cares about making money.

This is hilarious. At some point in the future there won't be seats. They will just fold the passengers in half and compress them inside big suitcases. The planes will just have luggage racks on the inside.

At this point you couldn't pay me to fly on an airline. It's just not worth it. I would rather drive or take a boat and keep my dignity.
