The airlines causing long lines with all of their baggage fees; more people are using carry-on luggage rather than checked luggage. Government is often blamed for not solving problems created by corporations; corporations who don't want to pay the taxes for government to operate efficiently.
Ironically, it was a corporate-sponsored Congress that took money from TSA for other purposes, and then forced the resignation of a TSA official.
I haven’t flown since 2008. I had had it with small seats, long security lines, and so-so service.
I think the only way the airlines will change is when they lose business. Unfortunately, more and more people want to fly somewhere for pleasure or business. Increasing ticket sales and profits just convince the airlines that they are doing the right thing.
