|airlines are ripping us off

You know how one-way flights are for some reason always more expensive than they should be? I'm booking my tickets to fly to Mexico in September, and there are a couple people from the group catching a really cheap flight roundtrip out of San Diego that goes through Atlanta on the departing trip. I thought 'hey, maybe I can go visit dad and catch up with the group in Atlanta, and that should be reasonable since they are the same planes, so they should still be cheap flights, right?' WRONG. The round trip is ~370. To fly just from Atlanta to Merida is over 500 dollars. $500 to sit on the exact same plane that the others who paid 370 round trip. The airlines are out to get us. And it isn't like they literally want the return flight to Atlanta to be just as full, because our return flight goes through Mexico City. So the airlines are just trying to screw us over big time. I've known this for a long time, but it just pisses me off.
