    If true, I would feel cheated indeed.

    I experience the same with Amazon.com. If I add items to the shopping cart and not check out for a few days, the seller is likely to jack up the prices. Then if I delete my order and wait for a few more days, the prices on those items move lower.

    Well, was there not a scandal with Delta presenting us mac folks with a higher priced fare for the same search as a windoze folks ? If DL can do it, so can the airlines across the pond.

    I've always suspected this was the case. Simple logarithm for them, and if they know you're interested (got you hooked), then it just makes sense for them.

    Glad you didn't buy in this case. I wouldn't reward them either for their behavior, this needs some urgent looking into.
