□ DO YOU DESERVE A REFUND FOR THAT JUNK FEE?

Should foreign airlines be allowed to serve domestic destinations?
American laws prevent foreign carriers from operating domestic flights. But what if they could? Would you buy a ticket on Singapore Air from LA to New York? Do these laws, which are meant to protect domestic carriers, worth keeping? I’d love to get your opinion. As always, don’t forget include your full name, city and occupation.
