Airlines Packing in Passengers Makes No Relational Sense

What can be on the minds of airline executives in relational terms these days? We haven’t flown for a while, but if a story on Public Radio International (PRI) is anywhere close to accurate, airline travel is being degraded in a seemingly mindless manner. 

“It’s not your imagination that you’re on a fuller plane than you used to be,” says William J. McGee the former editor-in-shied of Consumer Reports Travel Letter as quoted on PRI. “We’re looking at rates that we have not seen since the airlines were troop carriers during the Second World War.” And on it goes. 

In relational terms, this is crazy. The evident degradation of airline travel is folly. Our memory, even, of the last time we flew to California is what’s been leading us to prefer taking AMTRAK to the West Coast this year, if we can afford it.
