This is exactly how much work a SPECIALIST requires to install the expensive part. Not counting the special equipment required.

I agree. Look into "third party" shops for screen repairs. There are a bunch of third party places that can do the job for around $350 for 13" and $275 for 11" (2013/2014 pricing). The MacBook Air LCD's on the market are all the same model as the ones Apple is using (again, 2013/2014 info).
Here are a couple good ones:
MacScreenRepair.com <<(full disclusure I own this one and it is my favorite)
There are a bunch more, but these are ones I know personally and can recommend.

Just to provide my experience with this:
I went to the genius bar and the first quote I received was for $490 and change.
I took the computer home, looked online and couldnt' find anything cheaper so i went back for the repair. Someone else told me there was a cheaper solution, and I was charged a total of $290 for a brand new screen.
They also replaced the battery for free.
Needless to say I'm very pleased with the service.
