Cheap Airline Fares Available Online

from the incredible dept

A bunch of my friends are planning on flying from San Francisco to Las Vegas for a night (back in time to go to work the next morning a little drunker, and probably a little poorer) because rountrip tickets are $33 (less than the price of a cab ride from San Francisco to the airport). It seems that airlines are pushing all sorts of cheap fares to get people flying again. I’ve seen $100 tickets from SFO to NYC. Meanwhile, everyone I know who has flown in the past couple of weeks says that planes are less than 50% full. Doesn’t bode well the airline industry. However, for consumers, now is probably a great time to fly. Hotwire and Orbitz said they were getting plenty of traffic, since many airlines stopped publishing their last minute fare deals since they didn’t want to appear insensitive following September 11.
