Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
I fly Allegiant quite a bit. The trip is only 1 hour 45 min but I would gladly pay an extra $50 each way for more comfort.
I wouldn't pay more for a slightly bigger seat. I would pay more for a sleeping capsule like in the fifth element for long flights.
The 'Golden Age' of flying might be gone but at least the average joe can actually buy a ticket now.
Edit: Seriously need to emphasize just how badly the Airline industry has historically been performing for most of our recent history. So many bankruptcies, so many terrible quarters, fuel costs that have risen $40 billion in 10 years, consistently razor thin profit margins, and mounting penalties from the government. To put it in perspective out of a combined revenue of $142 billion in 2012 they put away $152 million in profits. That is... bad.
