A Price War?
Good news for those who travel regularly, or even occasionally, from New York to Boston. It appears JetBlue and USAir are engaged in a bit of a price war on the route. JetBlue recently commenced a fall fare sale, and USAir followed suit by dropping its New York-Boston price to around $100 for a round trip ticket. The deal excludes many business passengers, because it requires two-weeks advance purchase. But this is a small bit of good news for travelers battered and bruised by rising fares. A big fall fare sale across the airlines would be nice, but could their bottom lines, already pressed to the breaking point by rising fuel costs, withstand it?
