Americans refusing to be ripped off on transcon flights: Alaska CFO publicly calls for new jolt of price fixing
$220 round trip before seat purchase kabuki and other turnoff fees is considered a giveaway fare on transcons by an industry that worked feverishly to fix and collude the all in price to upwards of $400 or more. This was blessed by government regulators who added insult to injury by allowing Virgin to be smothered. Paid $44 for a flight from London to Athens (2k miles) last summer in the uncorrupted European market.
I never see $200 transcon round trips on Alaska from DCA but I do see them and have flown them on American.
