Joshua Macht

Airlines have taken a fundamentally different approach to the market.

We have seen the rise of a community known as the disgruntled commenter, the one who picks fights, hates the writing, never has anything nice (or productive) to say. But that's the price we pay and, well, I've come to realize it's a relatively small one.
