USA Flying Domestic Price

Why in the fly frick is flying in the US so damn expensive? I can almost get to MSP and from Berlin for the same price as going to and from SDF to MSP.

Meanwhile domestic flights within the EU are around $8-$100. Why the frick would anyone visit or travel in the US?

      Considering that's only half the ticket, homosexual. You still have to buy the return trip. Also, as I stated in my original post; Flights in Europe are cheap and go just as far as domestic US flights.
      A trip from Europe to the US and back is about the same price as flying domestically in the US for an 1/8th of the distance. Then once you get to that US city you still have to rent a car and drive every where. Absolute scam.

          Everything in the USA is a scam, this entire country is one giant scam to fleece the middle class out of their hard earned money.

          That's the true redpill.

        He's not assblasted over plane tickets, he's expressing his discontent with his trip to America. Personally, I somewhat enjoy seeing the country. The smaller cities, like St. Augustine, Ft. Collons, etc. are pretty nice. But, I have to agree with his points. America isn't that great to travel in compared to other options.

        no way. Too many horror stories of people naively taking busses in the US only to end up with a bunch of literal homeless, drug dealers banned from flying, or absolute crazy people looking for violence.

    The U.S. is suffering extractor. Travel and escape in general are made prohibitive and tedious to keep you nearby so the elites can keep slurping your misery.

    I can only assume that part of your problem is that SDF-MSP isn’t a popular route; SDF isn’t exactly a major passenger airport, although having looked it up I see that they move a shitload of cargo. So anybody who’s going from that particular point A to that particular point B really needs to get there and will pay whatever the airlines will charge. All the better if they’re going for work.

    >Meanwhile domestic flights within the EU are around $8-$100.
    It varies a lot, but on major/legacy carriers, most intra-European round trip flights aren’t that cheap. If I were to fly from Zürich to Madrid in March, for example, a flight less than 2.5hrs long, I would have to pay at least CHF164 ($178 at the moment), more likely 200-something.

      Flights in Europe are super cheap until you need to check two bags, then that hit doubles in price. It's like flying between islands in Hawaii.

    My guess is because the US has no functional high speed rail network. In Europe people would just take the train for shorter trips at some point if the airline tried to frick people over with high prices. Also ironically taxes (that burgers like to make fun of for us). You have 9/11 tax and several other bullshit taxes so a €10 Ryanair ticket wouldn't be possible in the US, often for every flight $50+ goes to the government before you've even started.

        Those things move people super slowly, very 19th century. Also incredibly inconvenient to business travelers (can't do work while driving), but also anyone else who doesn't fancy driving for 10 hours than finding a parking spot at their destination. Not a real competitor to airplanes. HSR is.

      Did you check the high speed rail prices in Europe? Without any trick just straight booking a ICE/TGV ticket is almost always more expensive than a flight.

        People are willing to pay more for comfort and convinent, in exchange for travel duration. The current ticket prices reflects that.

    first and foremost your monopoly money isnt worth as much as it was a few years ago Sven.

    second of all... MSP is a Delta Hub which is the nicest carrier. This aint some middle of the mall Ryan Airlines or Yuenling.

    third you can make this route on Delta planes for 25k Virgin Atlantic miles. 1 Amex Pt = 1 VS point.

      Bullshit. I was at MSP last year flying back to Amsterdam. They have 6 ticketing windows open only and everyone had to be checked due to covid bullshit. Five of the six windows were taking up by a group of 20 somalis. it never moved the entire four hours I waited in line to get my tickets. Only one window issued tickets to everyone. I barely made it to my flight. the only reason I made it was due to another Somali group too stupid to show IDs at the gate so it delayed boarding.

        Forgot to mention it was a Delta flight. the ticket attendants were too scare to tell the somalis to gtfo of the way.

    If you want better prices use a VPN and don't set Germany as your location. Also some airlines (e.g. Southwest) don't show up on travel searching sites.
