I agree with you 100%, I got called a dirty right winger for saying the same comments about Swoop. ULCCs dilute the industry and wages. Flying is a privilege, and the unfortunate part is too many people, like you said, believe flying is a right, and a right at $50. The people the suffer the most for those low fares? The employees. Take a chunk of market away from big red? Theyll fight back with low prices, and sure enough wages follow the lack of revenue.HansDietrich wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:34 am(BTW, I'm left seat now, with a salary that I can afford to eat and send my kids to school, flying corporate). I'm not an ass to fly with, despite my AVCANADA politically incorrect posts, but I'm also not going to feel sorry for some Joe Schmoe or Jane Doe for "not willing to pay a fair price" to fly across the 2nd largest country in the world. Flying is not meant for everyone. It's expensive. Low cost carriers made everyone think that flying is affordable and "ANYONE CAN FLY"... At who's expense? What's next? "$99 spine surgery"?
If I sound negative, it's because I am. At least I'm willing to call out bullshit on the public and their unreasonable expectations.
Id also like to point out ULCCs turn flying in to public transit. Stinky, trashy people fist fighting for overhead bin space.
