When he wasn’t making fun of his parent company, Oliver clarified how oligarchies allow businesses to create undesirable standards that hurt customers. Airlines, for example, are able to charge at least $25 for checking an extra bag, made possible because American Airlines started to do it and its competitors followed suit.
Over here in Europe we don’t have oligarchic airlines at all. It’s a hugely and vastly free market. We’ve also got charges for checking an extra bad.
Meaning that fees for checking a bag might not be the result of oligarchy….
