United Airlines Attempts First Fare Hike of the Year

United Airlines Attempts First Fare Hike of the Year

You probably didn’t notice since we’re only a week into 2013, but United already tried to raise fares, according to USA Today

On Thursday, United and its partner Air Canada increased fares system-wide by $2 to $5 each way depending on the length of the flight. Delta Air Lines matched the increase.

But Southwest didn’t, and apparently that’s a big deal. The offending airlines quickly backed down and dropped most fares to the original prices.

Competition is a beautiful thing – you might say it keeps airlines from being United.
