Shari and I didn't want to rehash the details of the doctor torn off of a United Airlines flight to give up his seat. Instead, I read an article from Travel and Lieser about a woman who made $11,000 giving up her seat for consecutive flights, and wound up not even flying with the original airline. It made me wonder, is this why we pay so much for our airline tickets, so they can pay someone to give up their seat?

My brother tried to get a cheap flight and found one recently and it was bottom dollar, as he went along in the purchasing, he was told he had to pay for his seat, he had to pay for a carry on, he had to pay for his bag, he had to pay to eat or drink something, and he had to pay to get two seats together so he could sit with his wife.
