There’s the economy, financial crisis and human rights issues…death penalty, abortion, gay rights and there are the numerous conflicts~Ukraine, Middle East, Korea.
but then there’s the really important stuff
like the cost of a plane ticket
putting aside the torture of air travel these days, the queues for security and complete surrender of all dignity…
I was just checking airfare from Chicago (ORD) to London (LHR)
nearly fell off my chair
nothing in September, October or November for less than $1000, One Thousand US Dollars!!!
Ahhh, just found something on British Airways (my personal favorite) for $749
For reference, ten years ago I used to travel this exact route for under $400.
