I’ll take cheap fares and purchasing my own food over paying the price of a small car for airline travel like they did in the past.

Our culture is increasingly “dumbed down”. I still don’t want to settle for coffee and fast food served in Styrofoam cups and on plastic dinnerware. Alas, most people today have never experienced anything else. They settle for less, because they have never experienced anything better. How sad. Give me the “good old days” of quality, class and a more elegant ambience…even with something as mundane as an airline meal.
