1. Maybe one more way to control our actions and reduce our freedoms?
Just a thought...

3. yep
too expensive to travel

unless you're doing it on the government dime

(or a lobbyists' dime, which has become pretty much the same thing)

2. exactly. one of my firends, who pays NO attention to politcs (unless she
is listening to me griping) on hearing about the newest airline debacle, immediately asked, "and WHO is going to pay for the airlines going under? I WILL be driving."

4. It is not only the airlines but the cruiselines.
I will not take my Nov cruise if I can not take my laptop and camera onboard with me...

5. I guess I answered my own question
make air travel onerous

more people drive

increased demand for gasoline means higher prices

higher prices means more profit and ever greater wealth for the executives.
