I don't see what "reasonable" has to do with it. If you don't like it,
and you have a choice, vote with your pocketbook by taking your business
If you don't have a choice, and your carrier knows it, then you have
little recourse except where it might affect business elsewhere.
I would use whatever stick or carrot I could, but reasonableness only
rarely enters into carrier business ethics.
