    Do those guys ever fly on commercial flights anyway? I thought private jets were the new black, what with the pressure to retain the highly favorable tax treatment for them and all that.

      I've seen my Congressional rep and my Senators on flights from Columbus to DC. They seem to prefer Southwest and United.

      The only way to stop this is to go back to regulation. Airlines at that time had to serve every airport that had runways they could use.

      Deregulation killed my favorite airlines: TWA, Eastern and PanAm. (I can't say that I miss Piedmont...)
