    The airline has upped fares on most domestic routes by $2 to $5 each way, depending on the length of the flight. Fares on flights of 2,000 miles or more have been raised by $10, according to United spokeswoman Christen David.
    As of Wednesday night, JetBlue had increased domestic fares by $2 to $5 roundtrip. But It was not immediately clear whether other airlines would match either of the price increases.

    A friend sent me a tweet today that said something along the lines of "I heard United is renting out the dreamliners as an affordable motel" :D

    Well I'm too new to post a link... but speaking of affordable hotels... I think the point was to have more 747s doing the hostel thing like the 742 in Stockholm, but they'll have to wait until those dreamers get back in the sky.

    I think the USA today has this same story every other week. They just cut and paste the name of the airline leading the charge.
