    Insane F Fares

    Okay, I just booked 10k butt in seat unrestricted F class travel, for the grand sum total of roughly $720 (with taxes, tags, and fees). This is a bit extreme. One can now get from PIT or CLT to LAX/SFO/LAS for $189 in each direction (before discounts). In the front of the bus...
