ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW

I have not watched the video, but I am going to assume that you are saying he said that airlines are charging more now to fly out of Tokyo than they were before the earthquake, and you think they should give away the seats because people are (possibly) in danger. Since Japan lost at least one airport, and thus has fewer ways out of the country, and more people are suddenly trying to leave, don't you think that might affect prices for the available seats?
I also posted the link for airfares leaving Tokyo to L.A.
SWISS AIR IS CHARGING 17,000.00 WITH TWO STOPS.
The same thing happened last year when the volcano in Iceland erupted. The number of flights were severely cut back, and the airlines jacked up prices through the roof. They did some pretty slimy things like not honoring tickets which had already been purchased so they could resell the seats at the inflated prices.
And Singapore Airlines is charging $787, which just proves you do not have a point.
Which is illegal everywhere in Europe and the US, which makes me wonder why you think they actually got away with it.
Singapore China is not that far away then again if you would watch the video it is explained a lot better than I could.
You got something against capitalism?
Not going to watch someone whine about something he does not understand anything about. That Singapore flight I mentioned is non stop from Tokyo to LA, so I am a little confused as to how China is not that far away is at all pertinent to the discussion.
Want to try again?
This is how Capitalism works; supply and demand and all that crap.
It would be nice if the airlines provided reduced fares but they're not going to do that; they're in business to make a buck.
