The Ft. Worth Star Telegram notes that it recently tracked the financial performance of an American Airlines flight from DFW to JFK. While margins on the route have improved over the past year, the flight is still in the red, a remarkable fact considering it has no non-stop competition from low cost airlines. Even worse, while 106 passengers flew in the first class cabin during the period studied, only ONE paid full fare. The rest were on frequent flier upgrades.
President Bush announced today that “since it has been said many times that man wasn’t meant to fly, it only makes sense that two men aren’t meant to fly together.” He then went on to ban homosexuals from airplanes.
OK, he didn’t really. But I figure it’s just a matter of time.
