Lots of players still don't have flying mounts because they are:1) Casual players are basically grounded due to the amount of time /gold needed to acquire this.2) Players who prefer PVP, to whom a flying mount is pretty much worthless.3) There's one reason for limited flying post patch, it's so it's a level playing field on pvp servers. You can still skip content on an epic ground mount with any number of buffs, potions, corpse walking, etc.I expect to see a major reduction in the price of the flying skill. Blizz knows that many don't have flying mounts. The is price prohibitive to anyone playing 1-2 hours a day a few times a week.Slowly new players are expecting to work less to get more, just like the removal of keying in the patch.I wouldn't be surprised if someday a new player can opt for an instant lvl 40 just to bypass the long grind to 80.

It is not price prohibitive to have a flying mount! I challenge somebody to level from 60 to 70 without making 1000g. I think I had something like 3000g saved up by the time I hit 70, and that's just from quests, vendoring quest rewards/greens, and selling the ore and leather I got along the way. No farming involved whatsoever.

I'm not sure how you can say lots of players don't have flying mounts. I don't know anyone at 70 (including 95% of alts of mains) lacking a flying mount. This seems to be the case on the 3 servers I play on.
