Can all the airlines go bankrupt? please.

I realize that airlines view bankruptcy the way some of us view buying new wardrobes: just another necessity of life every few years— but the recent fee fiesta these assholes have been on would make even the biggest shylock grimace and makes one think we can’t be far off from several airlines folding.
Maybe they should consider charging for toilet paper? Or barf bags?
Better: how bout if we pay they’ll knock off that moronic safety announcement bullshit (extra $5? sure!) . If you don’t know how to put a seatbelt on by now, you shouldn’t be flying on a plane alone–you small brained primate.
As for the airlines — gvt propped-up oligopolists. This dead wood hasn’t given the customer the attn they deserve in almost 8 years (9/11 was the excuse all airlines used to shit on their passengers from a service perspective). All airlines service now sucks ass. There are still those airline industry employees who understand what service is and attempt to render it – but they are the exception. Instead, most airline employees are underpaid and pissed off — wage concessions now the norm for most of these folks. Most greet travelers with a scripted “may I help you” and little more than a “sucks to be you” when they and their colleagues drop the ball or are unable to fulfill the contract they made with you when you bought the ticket. But – hey–don’t blame them. They’re just doing their job… for 40% less than they did two years ago.
Anyone who flies understands the introduction of the Totally Stupid Assholes–oh, sorry–the TSA– did nothing for airport efficiency. How could it? they hired a large group of under-trained security guard types without a thought for process. Customers and efficiency be damned–we’re federal employees!
