If it cost me let's say 300 dollars to get from here to Seattle, I would probably go there at least 4 to 5 times a year just to dry off. Ironic? total= 1200 to 1500 bucks.

But I pay (half) of that for ""one trip"" total=600 bucks making it hard for me to rationalize another trip. So usually I only take one intentional trip through Seattle a year. If everyone on our rock thought in those terms and Alaska Airlines thought in those terms, their rider ship would triple and by reducing our ransom we would actually improve their bottom line. By the volume of passengers tripling due to a lower ticket price. (DUNNO MAYBE?)

These are numbers I pulled out of my hat randomly but the the concept is what I am trying to get across.
