I see a need for a full service quality US based air carrier.

So US airways decided this month to charge more for window and aisle seats, and leave the less than desirable middle seats at the current rates.
What I see they are doing here, is US air carriers continuing to drive a wedge between the consumer and the airline. Flying used to be fun. 10 years ago it took 4 hours to fly from LA to NY. Now it takes 6.5 hours with all the waiting on the run way. The TSA has their own set of issues. Flying is becoming more of a hassle than ever.

Has providing fast air travel become such a monopoly that the free market no longer corrects these poor practices? Why cant a carrier come out of the crowd to be the number one, Lexus, BMW, Nordstrom quality service of air carriers?
