Update 1 – US Airways Matches Delta $10 Roundtrip Increase

February 29, 2008 | Posted in: Airfare News,Delta,US Airways | 0 comments

This evening in the 8:00pm EST domestic airfare distribution, US Airways matched the increase initiated earlier in the day by Delta Air Lines on over 6,000 city pairs. This leaves American, Continental, Northwest, and United yet to match of the six remaining legacy airlines.

A quick check of route overlap between US Airways and Southwest Airlines shows the $10 increase in a smattering of common routes with the bulk of overlap city pairs showing no increase. Tip-Toeing around lower cost airlines has been a constant theme in most of the “successful” increases this year…

February 28, 2008 | Posted in: Airline News | 1 comment

It used to be that a layover at an airport was a time for maybe grabbing a bite to eat or grabbing a paper at the bookstore. Of course, those days are gone. A layover means a few extra minutes to get some work done.

So, which airports do you want to find yourself in if you just have to get wired while waiting for your next flight to take off? Forbes has put together a list of the 30 most WiFi friendly major airports in the world. They measured passenger traffic as related to WiFi stations, pay vs. free, and a variety of other factors to come up with their “overall best” list.

My Column, “Fly First Class at Coach Prices” is Big Hit for ABCNews.com

February 27, 2008 | Posted in: Airline News,Tips and Tricks | 0 comments

I chose one of my favorite topics for my latest column on ABCNews.com: flying first class at coach prices. It must be a hot topic, because it hit the front page on ABCNews.com, and it was highlighted on the homepage of the ABCNews.com business and ABCNews.com travel sections.

I’m glad this topic is getting some notice, because even though I have done my best to let people know that they actually can find first class airline tickets for just a little more or sometimes even less than coach prices, most folks still look at me like I’m crazy. It’s the truth, though. Y-Up or Q-Up airfares give you the chance of flying upfront for far less.

You can see her story here; essentially, someone wrote in asking if having a DUI on his record would make it difficult for him to cross the border into Canada.

Difficult?

Short answer: yes.

Flying Green: Virgin Atlantic Tests Bio-Fuel Jumbo Jet

February 25, 2008 | Posted in: Airline News | 0 comments

If you ask Richard Branson, Virgin Atlantic Airlines has just taken a major step towards creating an environmentally-friendly jet. Ask others, and you might get a different take on things. Regardless of whether or not you buy into all that Branson says, the fact is that Virgin Atlantic’s test flight from London to Amsterdam could set the stage for future Green endeavors by major carriers.

The Virgin Atlantic test flight involved a 747 that was partially powered by bio-fuel. It was the first commercial jumbo jet to do so. Now, bio-fuel can mean a lot of different things, so it’s important to point out that this specific flight used a fuel derived from coconut oil and a palm tree-based oil.

Keep reading to get both sides of the debate surrounding Virgin Atlantic’s historic flight…
