Maybe Independence Air Has a Future

Perhaps Independence Air isn’t going out of business next month.  Fly-I posted its best traffic numbers so far, filling 53% of its seats in October, up 9 percentage points from September.  Not quite the 70something percent they need, but much better than the previous couple of months, where fat people could’ve had 2 seats all to themselves on most flights.  With Southwest asking the overly weighted to buy two seats, perhaps this is a great marketing tool—our flights are so empty, even fat people can fit!
