My wife travels to DTW to ABQ on regular basis. Checks fares every week looks for a deal 6-8 weeks out and then buys a ticket. For the last year she has been doing round trip for around $200. She flew NWA, SWA, AAL, and Frontier. Now everyone, except Frontier, has raised their fares to around $400 round trip. Even SWA cheapest ticket through October was $435 RT. Three weeks ago that ticket was around $187. I wonder how this will effect load factors?
