Well, US Airways and Southwest didn’t jump on board for the latest $6 dollar fare increase, so the “Big Six” have dropped their latest attempt to raise prices. I think this was just a case of United seeing what they could get away with. When everyone didn’t jump on board, they rescinded the increase. I love how United cited high fuel prices as the reason for this given that prices have dropped fairly significantly in the last few weeks. Granted, fuel prices are still historically high, but still…..I think this is just another “test” run to see how much the traveling public will bear. Don’t be surprised if there is another attempt to raise prices in the not so distant future.
