The marketing and revenue side of management appears to be pre-occupied by marginal cost reductions (removal of music, etc). Have not seen any specific actions to imcrease number of passengers or revenue. Even United has reduced B fares on competing routes and claims increased ridership.

Although I hope US is around for a long time, it seems that Benny's Boys are rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
