Mmm, maybe a mad idea but could it just be a con by the airlines to make more profit, just a thought. Nah they wouldn't do that would they.

If you want a billionaire to go bankrupt, ask him to start an airline ... well, unless he is Richard Branson. 
Airline business may look glamorous, but the profit margin is paper thin.  It probably has more external threats than many other industries ... war, terrorism, natural disasters, disease (SARS, bird flu), jet fuel prices, and GFC ....  With air fares keep going down, full service airlines have to rely on fuel surcharge, excess baggage charge, cargo and inflight DFS, no-frill airlines have to charge for anything they can think of !
