This seems unfair to me. I recently searched for flights to haiti in december and the cheapest was about $1000 roudntrip from the mid-atlantic area and it was couple with 25 hours of traveling.

I'm not sure who's on those flights but i wouldnt be surprised if AA was flying with empty seats.

It's frustrating for certain folks to accept the fact that you'll be alone for the holidays because of flights.

Not a lack of it but the outrageous prices.

It's highway
