Online Booking Bonuses – Going the Way of the Dinosaurs?

January 31, 2008 | Posted in: Airline News,Frequent Flyer,United | 0 comments

Used to be, booking airfare online with one of the legacy carriers meant a “booking bonus”; usually, extra frequent flier miles.

But, according to Ben Mutzabaugh in USA Today, those bonuses are going the way of the T-Rex. Today is the last day United will be doing that; the only remaining bonus-giver of the big-6 is American, and who knows how long they’ll continue.

What’s going on? Hint: it’s got to do with money (what else?). Click “more” and I’ll explain.

Which Airports Saw the Biggest Airfare Increases/Decreases in 3Q of ’07?

January 30, 2008 | Posted in: Airfare News | 0 comments

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) released their airfare data for the third-quarter of 2007.

BTS notes that the 3rd quarter 2007 has the highest average airfares since the third-quarter of 2006, .8% higher than the latest averages.

Remember this is the quarter that didn’t include the huge run up in fuel costs — Q4 2007 (not reported yet) which had about 10 airfare increases.

The average third-quarter airfare for domestic travel was $328 (business and leisure travel) — .7% higher than the $326 average of the second quarter.

These airline ticket prices will jump dramatically when Q4 information is published — we have been tracking new four year highs at the end of 2007 and now in early 2008.

Keep reading to see which airports enjoyed the biggest average airfare decreases in the third-quarter, and which airports had to deal with the biggest airfare average increases…

What Do Tiger Woods and Cheap Airfare Sales Have In Common?

January 30, 2008 | Posted in: Airfare News | 0 comments

Answer: Arnold Palmer

Yes golf is a passion of mine and no, I haven’t gone crazy — let me tie up these “very” tenuous loose ends.

Tiger just recently tied Arnold Palmer’s record for PGA tour wins (62) and whilst I was reviewing our internal 12:30 domestic airfare report for deals…

I noticed Northwest Airlines today appears to be celebrating this achievement by dropping prices up to 75% to/from Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

Yes Latrobe, the airport maybe better known as “Arnold Palmer Regional Airport” (after it’s native son …)

Latrobians should checkout these new low airline ticket prices …

$40 Airline Ticket Fuel Surcharge Increase Holds Steady

January 29, 2008 | Posted in: Fuel Surcharges | 0 comments

There has only been a smattering of activity related to the 40$ roundtrip fuel surcharges over the past four airfare distribution cycles since Sunday evening (including this morning’s 10:00am EST airfare distribution).

The fuel surcharge related activity since Sunday includes:

  • Midwest Airlines joined in and matched the $40 roundtrip fuel surcharge increase
  • Northwest Airlines matched the $40 roundtrip fuel surcharge increase on an additional 600 markets (city pairs)

It appears that this particular attempt at a fuel surcharge increase is going to “stick” – airfare hikes are now batting .500 for 2008 with four airline ticket increase attempts in the first four weeks of the year – two of which that have been mostly “sticky”…

Joe Sharkey has an enlightening article in the New York Times breaking down the insanity that ensues when the Super Bowl comes to town.

Joe was at his house in Phoenix, preparing to get out before the madness began. But before he left, he assessed the situation, noting that some folks are spending $10,000 a week to rent homes, while others are shelling out $600+ a night to stay in old broken down motels…click “more” for the crazy details!

 

UPDATE: Say you’ve got the money for the Super Bowl but you decide not to go; what else you can you do with that cash? How about 2-weeks in Tahiti, a brand-new Lexus, or…acting like Jack Nicholson. These ideas and more, right here.
