A golden value of commerce : don't cause scarcity by sticking to artificially high prices. Follow the demand-supply mechanism and LOWER your prices if you're not getting enough customers. Especially when the only alternative (as in case of flights) is absolute loss.

Some details of USA taxing its poor, it would be well worth to get similar statistics for India or an Indian state:

According to government officials, 68 million American adults plus their children - one in four US homes - can't open a bank account for one reason or another. The most common barrier is simply being too poor. So instead of sending a simple free check to pay each monthly bill, they must purchase a money order at a cost of up to $5.00 per payment. Instead of obtaining a small, short-term loan at an interest rate of say 5% like other Americans; the poor, working poor, and working class must pay 200% interest for the same loan using a payday loan, title lender or pawn shop. That's currently costing the people who can least afford it $89 billion annually in fees that their more affluent counterparts in American society never have to pay.

90% of all the banks closed since the 2008 economic collapse were in low-income communities. It also reveals that the average working class individual pays an average of $2,412 in yearly unnecessary financial fees just to participate in society from day to day. The report indicates that is 10% of a poor person's income. But in reality, that amounts to roughly 15% of a minimum wage earners gross income, or as much as 30% of a person's net income after taxes. That's one large 'poor tax'.
