The (Airline) Gods Must Be Crazy!!!

I have been looking at various airlines' prices for flights from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh. Things are truly getting nuts! Many of the airlines are only offering flights with connections, some as far away as Dallas, TX. Continental's cheapest flights are over a thousand dollars!!!

The only really cheap flights seem to be from Southwest Airlines. However, given their recent safety concerns, I am not certain I want to deal with them.

Part of this is the result, I suspect, of high gas prices. However, it is also a sign that our air travel system, like much of our infrastructure, is in decay.
