    Actually this is no different than it was in the old days before airline tickets could be purchased online. You found out which seat you got when you checked in at the airport. That said, claiming that this uncertainty keeps ticket prices lower – which is only possible if it keeps the airline’s costs lower – is hogwash. There are only a few seats that they could actually expect people to pay a premium for, such as those in bulkhead or exit rows. For the rest of the seats they’re just trying to get you to voluntarily pay a surcharge for something they’re going to eventually have to give you anyway.

      Spot on, Kevin. And I love the tag for this article: “Don’t Waste Your Money”. Pretty much says everything. Delta is a third-rate airline anymore, meaning GRR’s hold on a “major” airline is tenuous at best. Yet another of the many reasons why driving to Detroit to fly is a better option.
