DALLAS (AP) - Passengers whose travel plans were wrecked this
week when thousands of flights were canceled might not want to hear
it, but airfares are going up again.
Several airlines confirmed Tuesday that they are raising prices
on many domestic routes by $10 one way and $20 per round trip, even
as snowbound passengers remain stranded at New York City-area
United, Continental and Delta said they're raising prices
effective immediately. Travel website FareCompare.com says American
is too, but the airline didn't respond to a request for comment.
Airlines posted strong profits in the third quarter, but they
face rising jet fuel prices.
