people deciding to drive rather than fly...
the 7 major airlines 7 billion dollars in the red...
I do not understand why they are not offering more promos!?
Seems like they are driving people away.
We have to pay our highest ever of $190 RT fr BWI-MCO this Dec.!
:crazy: :confused:

Well, if the promo does not cover their costs they are probably worse off then before. Basically the airlines cannot fly you to Orlando for the fees you are paying. They have to use business travelers like me to make up the difference and when we cut back there is not as big a "pad". THe cheap fares are basically covering just part of their costs.
