    "How much are you willing to pay to freeze an airfare until you can finalize your travel plans? While searching for flights on United recently, I came across an add-on option I had never seen before: a fare lock. On this particular itinerary, United offered an option to lock in a fare for 72 hours at $9.99 or $14.99 for one week. I chose not to buy the ticket or pay for fare lock and a week later, the price on the same itinerary had gone up and the fare lock option disappeared."

    Wow...they discovered a product which was first introduced in 2010. Shocked they didn't title it "Breaking News!"

    It must have been a slow media day. If the truth be told, the vast majority of the "news" is simply recycled and repackaged for the audience. :eek:
