The big air travel scam
If you check the air travel time for example for a 380 mile trip you will find that it is 3 hours 30 minutes, put if you take the recommended arrival time at the airport is 2 hours prior to departure plus at least an hour to leave the plane, and get to a car it is 6 hours and 30 minutes minimum, plus travel time to the address you are traveling to of maybe 1 hour, making it 7 hours and 30 minutes. Compare this to 5 hours and 30 minutes for a car, not to mention the hundreds of dollars you save on the ticket/s. In other words, air travel has gone to hell for trips of 700 miles or less. But, it is not much better for long trips. Plus, there are no more friendly skys.
