    I am looking to book a flight Tuesday Feb 11 and return Thursday the 13th. Time of day does not matter and the flights are almost wide open. The airfare they are trying to charge is over $800.00. To be fair I went to Southwest and looked at their direct flights not connecting and total airfare is $378.00 roundtrip. A connecting flight with American/US Air costs $420.00. Several other cities where they are over pricing from IAH with a 7 day notice are: St. Louis, Nashville, Tulsa, OK City, and even both airports in Dallas. Am I missing something?

    Probably demand... does UA run as many flights as WN / AA and everyone else on that route?

    I see three flights, with the 8:59am one being basically half empty and about a dozen seats on the other two. I would expect lower prices at 7 days out, but I don't know how their revenue management folks think. :)
