    Jet fuel is insanely cheap. Airlines get a very good deal, (In comparison to say, non-airline jet fuel or general aviation fuel). I believe it is something like $1.20 a gallon.

    I think the rise in cost is due more to increased demand and increased need for pilots as pilots retire and are not being replaced quickly enough at the major airline level, leading to more pay for the pilots that are there to make up for the amount they are flying.

    I think it's just corporate greed, I mean they charge you more to pick your seats and have luggage it's absurd

    Never heard it be called kerosene over here haha. It’s just Jet A or jet fuel, unless a European flew into the airport by chance.

    Any increase in airline prices is because they run a monopoly and will suck up as much money as they possibly can from customers and pass it off to shareholders.

  15. Will never understand why people think shit like that helps bring people to Bernie’s side and into the fold. But I’m just beating a dead horse now.
