Surely this is only one end of a scale where high demand for cheaper flights causes industry to commoditise its product (bums on seats for minimum cost of operation)? On the other we have the inhibition of some safety measures where the cost/benefit of lives saved, exceeds $0.25M/125K per capita (i.e too expensive for industry wide application). I would suggest that the fate of onboard fire fighting sprinkler systems is a case in point for the other end of the scale.
