Guys, Crimea isn't Russian

17 hours ago

Nothing wrong here..charge what the traffic will bear.Nothing is free, and pricing is the best way to determine market demand. I'm cheap-I will take a budget airline to save a few $$, others can afford 1st class; why do so many people ignore the benefits of the free market?

It's not that overflight fees are too expensive; it's that Russia's selectiveness with what airlines can fly over it prevents airlines from competing with one another.

Between constant hacking and air space restrictions, Russia is literally the lamest country in the world. There must really be nothing going on there.

If Russia won't let you fly over it, I feel they should be taxed the value of the fule wasted going around. Shouldn't wast fule over a money making pull. Could also do it back to them.

The propeller service would have to make constant stops to refuel regardless of the route flown.

Sanctions against a country as big, as developed, and as wealthy as Russia, is a stupid mistake. We need Russia on our side!

I totally agree, as a Russian living in Moscow right now

Plane tickets have become way too cheap. The quality of pilots has also depreciated. Why should so many non-essential passengers be flying around just for fun, because of cheap "Budget" tickets? Flying needs to be made more expensive. Half the seats in most airliners should be removed, so that passengers no longer suffer, from being packed in like sardines in a can, while travelling. Fewer, better paying passengers, would free up more space for cargo, and everyone would benefit.

On that flight from London to Tokyo. Why not stop or fly over China? China is not the ussr

China also restricted overflights during the Cold War, since they were also a Communist country.
