Airlines attempt to raise fares again; Las Vegas flights affected

By Associated Press

DALLAS >> Leading U.S. airlines are again trying to raise prices on many domestic flights.

Delta Air Lines confirmed Friday that it had raised fares to Florida, Phoenix and Las Vegas by up to $10 per round trip. 

US Airways confirmed that it raised fares on many U.S. routes by $6 per round trip, matching an increase by JetBlue Airways. 

Airlines have imposed about a dozen broad fare increases this year. Ticket prices vary by route, time of day, and whether they’re nonstop, and airlines often raise some fares while cutting others. This week, Southwest, American and JetBlue have run broad-based fare sales.

I fly on Omni and would pay more if the California, Freemont and Main Street Hotel slots were looser.

If airlines would provide, on every ticket purchased, an itemized breakdown of WHERE each cent for a ticket is going to, what costs, expenses, etc., then I think consumers would be more inclined towards these increases.

Still cheaper than the neighbor islands. I got r/t air, 5 nights with a suite at the luxor, and transfers for $850. Hawn Air wanted $350 R/T just to maui. The hotels were a minimum $200 a night. You decide - 2 nights on maui with no car or 5 in vegas on the strip.
