    Yeah, I'm sure it's all a coincidence.

    Only a matter of time before this piece of aviation history becomes a trivia question.
    As the song says, "Bye, Bye Miss American Pie".

    They can say pilots are calling in sick all they want but the real issue is that people are finding other methods of travel if at all possible.

    The airlines better wake up and realize that several factors are in play but TSA is one of the major factors, the airlines treating people like cattle is the other major factor in my opinion.

    If you put up obstacles to an activity, you reduce participation. The more onerous the obstacles, the greater the reduction. It is clear that many, many people dislike the TSA scope and grope and other invasive activities a great deal. Hard to quantify, but clearly enough to impact currently stressed bottom lines. It will be quite interesting when the TSA invasiveness is outlawed, and the numbers start going up again.

    When I'm 90. Hopefully, I'll still be around and able to drink champagne.
