Airlines Raise U.S/Canadian Airfares – Just in Time for Hockey Season

September 27, 2007 | Posted in: Airfare News,Airline News

Prices for travel between the U.S. and Canada have been increased system-wide over the past week — starting with Air Canada earlier in the week, and then subsequently matched by all overlapping U.S. domestic airlines.

I normally don’t post on these types of airfare increase moves for travel between U.S./Canada, but it really cuts me to the bone that airlines would take advantage of “us” hockey aficionados (can a hockey fan actually use the word aficionado – oh well that will be a discussion another time)…

Some sample increases today on Delta who is the most recent to match Air Canada include:

  • Atlanta to Toronto – up $28
  • Atlanta to Vancouver up $21

The average increase was between $15 and $45, some much higher between thousands of city pairs — ouch!

    Airfares from the U.S. to Canada are exhorbitant unless WestJet flies the routing. Use your FF miles wherever possible or fly to border cities whenever possible or be prepared to pay through the nose
