Why do we let airlines push us around

  So its summer ( or nearly ) and its the time when its easy to travel to and from Bozeangeles. The Goat family is in the midst of a family visiting stretch. The passes are clear of snow so friends and family can drive over from near by states and towns, but its amazing to think of anybody flying on a commercial airline these days.

 They nickel and dime you and expect you to put up with delays, cancellations and indignities at every step. My sister and niece came up from Houston to visit. It took them 18 hours of late flights canceled flights, missing ground crews , missing flight crews and rude attendants to get here. Picking them up at 2:30 in the morning at the greater Bozeangeles airport was no fun either.  I don't think this is uncommon, here in America or anywhere. My sister is writing a post for this blog on her tortured travels but I'd be interested in hearing yours as well. Please post your horror stories or suggestions for solutions below.

Because we let the car industry destroy the passenger train business in the 50's and 60's we are slaves to the car and the plane. I'm not a big fan of government intervention in business but they should re-nationalize the airline industry
