I don't fly enough to care, but the pricing model has become a death of one thousand cuts. I can see why that is bothersome, even if it can be described as fair exchange of value or whatever.

Well it turns out people prefer to pay 10$ and 5*12$ instead of 70$ for a flight, probably because it feels like you can save a bit.

At the end the airline needs to get its bottom line green and airplanes and satellite wifi are not cheap, not to speak of the highly paid people needed to run it all.

It's one thing to call that unethical, but at the end the market decides and it seems that all-inclusive deals simply do not resonate as well.
