And Pilots of Course. We make too much, can't sell $200 trans con RTs and make money. Of course the prices haven't changed much since the 60's, to the 80's, but of course inflation has.

Ticket then = Greater % of a person's income than today
Ticket today = Greater value for consumers today than 10, 20, 30 yrs ago.

Greater value today = Pilots must be paid less so JimBob (who makes more than the F.O. as a Walmart greeter) can take his family on a Disneyland vacation every other year.
