It's perfectly fair. Seat X is worth Y, so they're charging Y. If you don't want to pay Y, then someone else will be willing to if they've correctly priced the seats. You're personalizing something that is abstract... there's nothing personal about it.

Moreover, YOU have better seats than the folks behind you... why shouldn't you pay more than them?

To me being told by you to just give up my seats of a few decades... like it is nothing at all... is quite Marie Antoinette like in it's lack of any compassion or empathy. It is not as simple as that.
Dude, you're asking for compassion and sympathy over a luxury good. Are you *ing kidding me?
