Subject: Summer Airfares are up - is it my imagination??
Greetings Ziners,

I have been checking airfares for a summer trip to Italy. Currently, Seattle to Rome is about $1600. This seems a lot higher than last year when people I know paid from $1000 - $1200 for the round trip.

Did these folks just get a good price for summer travel or are we seeing the results of the United bankruptcy and reduced competition?
