Fares dropping??


#1

I frequently fly the PIT-JAX route. Looking at fares on US, they are actually about $20-50 lower than normal (for Aug. it’s $178, and I paid $233 back in Apr.). This is also true on a few other routes.

With gas prices soaring, I imagined they’d be much higher. Is this due to the new bag/bev fees? It’s about the only thing I can imagine.


#2

It could be a matter of supply-and-demand seasonal thing. More people may want to go to Florida in April than in August.


#3

It might just be a sale. Also, you could be checking farther in advance compared to when you last did, where there are more seats.


#4

Did the airport start up new service with another airline? Good ol’ price wars driving each other out.


#5

Well, I’ll have to say no to all of your suggestions, of which I did take into account.

However, there probably are seats and less demand. That’s my best bet.
