Northwest announced that it has increased fares $10 each way on long-haul flights and $5 each way on domestic flights. American has matched some of these increases. While this is not normally big news, Northwest rarely starts a price increase (and tends to quash others’ attempts at raising fares). Not earth-shattering news, but the fact that Northwest did it is interesting.
In other fare news, just about all of the carriers are offering $59 one-way fares between Chicago and Boston/New York/DC for travel through May. Book by Monday, Feb 28th.
