October 20, 2009, 6:34 PM — To the casual observer, airline pricing is insane. On any given flight, each passenger has paid a different price than the others. There are people in business class who paid far less to fly than the unlucky or unwise person flying in a center seat in coach near the bathrooms. There may even be people flying for free, or on fares so cheap they might as well be free. It can be cheaper to fly coach from Los Angeles to Paris than it can from Los Angeles to Chicago.
