With The Associated Press reporting that the ailing airline industry could lose up to $3 billion in revenue annually if these fare changes were widely adopted, we're reminded of one of the early scenes in the Clint Eastwood movie Dirty Harry.
Specifically, we recall the scene in which Clint Eastwood's Harry Callahan, chatting with a man who's threatening to jump off a building, explains to the man the big problem, as Callahan sees it, with suicide jumpers: When they jump, they grab hold of whoever's nearby to bring them along.
We wonder if that's Delta's strategy here, as far as the other nonbankrupt air carriers are concerned: If we're going down, we're taking you with us. Talk about flying United.
