In concert with the appalling behavior of grounded airlines in recent months—and their literal imprisonment of passengers on the ground for ten hours at a time, without benefit of food, water, bathroom facilities, air, or room to move—there is nearly nothing that could motivate me to book a flight to anywhere for any reason. Whatever adjustments to my travel plans I have to make to avoid commercial flights, I will do. There is nothing on earth that is worth the treatment now accorded to airline passengers.
