A Frugal Dad’s Perspective on the Profitability Challenges that Plague U.S. Carriers

As I landed in Zurich this morning pondering how I no longer can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine on an intercontinental flight (which will never be the case on Air France so long as Mr. Christian Herzog remains SVP Marketing–more on this to come), I was calmed down by a lovely infographic put together by my friends at Frugal Dad.

The below infographic offers a thoughtful (and handsome) look into what has plagued U.S. carriers since deregulation. So before you complain about that $25 baggage fee next time you head for the sun, keep in mind that you’re only paying one-fifth of what you would have 30 years ago for that flight to L.A.

Of course, airlines could still be more generous with the free hugs…or at least a smile?
