Anyone get a letter from the Airlines?

Huh... I don't know what to think. It's a letter signed by all the CEO's of all the major airlines asking us to help end oil speculation.

I smell a red herring because it ain't speculation causing high fuel prices, it's the limp friggin' dollar. Jeeze, barely four years ago AUD and CAN $$ were discounted ~30% and today we're at parity with them Gawds sake.

Sounds like the response in this thread was to an email of the same letter:
A great piece on the airlines

Funny you brought that up. I did get an e-mail and an automated phone call from Mid West telling me that there has been a change in our flight in September. They gave me a phone number to call, but the one time I did get an answer, they said the wait would be over ONE HOUR. I have tried e-mailing them, but they say the only way to find out is to call. I hope I can get through before September.

I'm sure they'd be happy to do that for twice the current price of a ticket =)

I am flying to GA. in October for a friend's wedding and looked at prices on Air-Tran. I can book now for around 277.00 but the there is a clause the length of my arm stating that the price could rise and I would be charged accordingly unless I fly business class in which case the price would remain the same except for the luggage fee.
