Airfares are going up, it’s sure.
Newly released figures from the government, confirm that airline prices in the first three months of this year rose nearly 5 percent compared with last year. And that doesn’t include baggage fees and other extra, new “creative
costs” they invented.
Air travel still looks like a bargain. Average fares are 25 percent lower than they were in 90ties, the DOT says.
But if you add all the extra cost they add now you end up easily paying 30-50%% more than the advertised airfare.
You have to shop for fares don’t trust your favorite airline.
