You contemptable asse Mitch, how dare you propose how to run an airline. As a former CFO beancounter for a number of the United States low cost and first rate airlines...

passengers are too stupid to realize this. Please you are barking to the wrong crowd if you think airlines give a damn. People are not particularly smart and the airlines know this. You are wasting your time Mitch trying to enlighten this plebian crowd of smelly hooligans.

Oh thanks for flying deregulated airlines by the way.

P.S. Just lavishing in my luxurious London townhouse, while laughing at how my ad and marketing biz friends are getting such a ribbing for a diabolically bad rebranding do, while the rest of my buddies are smooshing on the golf course cozy little airline exec club as we wait for another airline to we are at to fail after getting the supposedly dimwitted but in the club too, board of directors to approve too good to be true golden parachute and executive compensation perk and bonus packages so we can move to the next airline after another pay enriching bankruptcy at our level so we can do it all over again with the help and aid of our attorney and lawyer and in the pocket bankruptcy judge friends.

We should get together Mitch to discuss how we have calculated with every extra minute we can keep our passengers in the airport and plane in provides a 15% additional long term ancillary revenue stream. Passengers don't get this though, so some of your fees would simply be a cost of doing biz.

Mitch Albom.... There are answers for all of the things you want to charge the airlines for. In fact I question how much you know about the airlines.... Unfortunatly for Airline CEO, alot of the issues could be fixed if an airline were run better
