...People are tired of being abused by both airlines and the TSA.
You want to grope me (virtually or in real life) to get on board? Go to hell -- I'll drive.
You want me to risk having to play "strip search" (virtual or actual) with TSA employees, and if I've got some sort of medical issue like a colostomy bag or similar have your people treat me like my medical condition is a terrorist threat? Go to hell -- I'll drive.
$50 extra to check a bag (and I can't carry anything on any more, including my damned toothpaste)? It costs me zero extra for as many bags as will fit in the car and I don't have to put up with that crap when it comes to my personal effects either -- I'll drive.
Surly airline personnel, unreasonable change/break fees and similar, never mind charging me $5 for a freaking soda in the airport when, not if, my flight is delayed -- after you refused to let me bring a sealed can of soda through the checkpoint? Go to hell -- I'll drive.
A "person of size" can take half my seat and I have no recourse? Oh, and after the airline does that to me (and they know, obviously, when the large passenger checks in that I'm going to get screwed) and leaves me with no recourse the airlines and airports then strand the plane on the tarmac and treat me like cattle about to be bang-sticked, flensed, grilled and served as Christmas dinner? Go to hell -- I'll drive!
