  1. I would rather the airlines get real about the space that is needed for a remotely comfortable seat and charge us (the consumer) more than to keep offering cheap seats that make everyone miserable. I’m willing to pay $500/rt for a real seat with baggage checked and WiFi than $400/rt and be nickled and dimed to death for seat upgrades, baggage fees (if I don’t have their CC or Status), early boarding, etc.

  2. Flipping a coin over $5,000,000 reminds me of that time Herb Kelleher arm-wrestled a guy over a disputed business slogan. Google or check Youtube for “Malice in Dallas.”

    Absolutely brilliant marketing.
