Gulf Oil Spill: Cheaper Airfare in Region – My Interview with Fox New’s Shepard Smith

May 28, 2010 | Posted in: Airline News,Multimedia,News,Pricing Activity

gulf oil spill cheaper airfare

Shepard Smith of Fox News introduced me as the CEO of FareCompare – he then helpfully explained that FareCompare.com is the ” place where we go to sort of look at what everything’s costing”.

Everything airfare, that is.

And as I told Shep in our live interview yesterday, we are definitely seeing airfare prices trending downward to the New Orleans area – recently, airline ticket prices were down about 20%, whereas they are up about 20% everywhere else (compared to last year’s historic lows).

Shepard Smith says he’s hearing from people in Destin and Panama Beach who depend on tourism, saying “We’re hurting”. I believe it, and depending on the fluid situation with that gulf oil spill, we could see more discounting on the way.

 Look here for the interview  or just click on the picture above (it’s not very long).
