    United Airfare Increase

    United Airline have again tried to increase its fair by 10 dollar per passenger per round trip. United have tried this in the past but have not been successful to increase their fares on numerous number of times. Usually due to strong competition in the air travel market when one air carrier increase their airfares other low cost airlines do follow.

    If the other airlines do not follow this time the Ticket price of the united will go up and it will start losing business so lets see this time if the other airlines change their fares with them or leave united alone . If they left United airline alone and did not modified their airfare rates then at some point the United will also be forced to decrease its Fares because this is a busy tourist season and even a single dollar can result in loss of thousand of dollars of business for United Airlines.

    An increase in price is quite an odd choice at the moment but maybe it was necessary for them. Like you said competition is tough! The things people do for a cheaper ticket... it's amazing. I tried it a couple of times but nowadays, even though I do look at all the prices and try to get the cheapest one, I usually go with a decent airline and a direct flight even if it's a bit more expensive.

    What??? Increase it even more??? As if a round ticket to Holland costing 1,400+ dollars wasn't high enough!!!!! Back in 2008 the ticket prices were better, but it was when continental was still continental, and hadn't merged with united I remember a round ticket to Oslo costing only 1000 dollars or so (I bought it with 4 - 5 months of anticipation!!).

    To be honest I don't think the prices will go down... there are very few airlines that fly internationally nowadays; many of them vanished or merged with others. I wish I could be more optimistic, but I don't see prices going down ever again, I think that now on they'll just keep raising, unless a big international airline decides to compete with them... I don't see a chance of that happening anytime soon

    In the past couple of years, seldom is it ever the case that airfares are decreasing. Charges and higher costs of fuel make traveling a more expensive proposition each year. I heard that a new round of airfares rising has just been reported, as the airlines are at least consistent.

    The costs are increasing for passengers, because the airlines costs are increasing. I do not get why everyone always complains when the fares increase, the airline company still has costs.

    They surely have increased it. The most basic thing is to go to a level where a lot can be take care of and also sticking to the basics is the way how it all comes around us experiencing such things is completely normal thing.
