Airlines are suffering because more people want to travel? As some commentators like to say, WTF? I can't see why normal market forces are not handling this? For example, if everybody are fed up with poor service, raise service and prices, and those who are most fed up will go to you.
By the way, whatever happened to the Internet taking the load off commuting and business traveling?
In any case I praise gawd every day that my travel to work is twelve meters. (It used to be three meters, but I have a bigger place now.)
