Consider the average row of everyday airline seats.

It'd probably be like lining up triple sevens on a slot machine if they were all purchased for the same price.

What with online discounts, credit card air miles, and the like, a reasonable airline just wants to see them filled. After all, once the plane takes off, those seats for that flight can't be sold anymore.
