I saw a tweet on this last night from the Houston Chronicle's transportation reporter. I've been tracking a trip from Houston to Vegas in February for future purchase and it appears to be true. (at least on one domestic route). Pre 1st fare hike: $433 After 1st fare hike: $443 Currently: $453 Travel is in Feb 2013 leaving on a Thursday arriving back in Houston on a Monday. If so this would be the 2nd fare hike in two weeks. I wonder if anyone will match? Anyone else noticed this? I haven't had time to search anything else. Can't find anything in the news about it yet.
