Summing Up My View On Air Travel

This Freakonomics article, focusing specifically on baggage fees, includes the line:

"Air travel, even economy class, was once a joy; now it’s an exercise in stoicism."

That perfectly sums up my feelings about flying, which I used to love but now loathe. Whether it's the reduced seat space, the over-the-top security (one guy, once, tried to blow a plane up with explosives in his shoes, so now billions of people have to remove their shoes each time they go through security?), the nothing-is-included approach to the fee structure, or the increased frequency of delayed or cancelled flights, air travel absolutely sucks now. I can't wait for the teleportation machines, personally.
