|Subject: Re: Summer Airfares are up - is it my imagination??|
I think it's just too early to find many bargains for summer travel. All the airlines are very jittery about a potential war, the future of UA & USAir, & financial woes. I expect in the next few weeks things will loosen up. Summer bookings are very scant so far.
That said, I don't think we'll see gangbuster low fares for summer. Spring & fall, yes; summer no. Airlines dearly want to increase their yields on transactions & demand is generally higher in summer, so they're going to hold out in the vain hope folks will pay higher rates. All will be revealed.
