Travel quote of the week: Airline ticket prices & level of service

“In 1974 I flew L.A. to New York for $250.00 round trip.  Adjusted for inflation (google “inflation calculator”) that would be $1107.00 today. Orbitz has a roundtrip price for the same flight for $278.00 (advance booking) right now.  We are not paying for the level of service we had back in the good old days and to expect it is very naive. Airlines that try to give anything more than cheap basic service don’t last long. With the wages  that flight attendants earn (and they do earn it) I’m surprised anyone would take the job.  Give’em a break!” – Greg (a comment found on my Indigo Airlines post)
