Jamie Baker, an analyst with J.P. Morgan, said Delta saw a change that Northwest made in the terms of some of its prices and misinterpreted that as a fare reduction, then dropped its price increase in response.

Continental followed Delta's lead a few hours later and canceled the increase that it started last Thursday night. A spokeswoman for the Houston-based airline also cited competitive pressure.


Odds are the companies will attempt to reinstate the fare hikes in hopes this "misinterpretation" by DL is reversed.

Well I just did a search for IND to AMS for July 28th to August 4th which is Thursday to Thursday travel and after the holidays. NW is charging $1087 for a ticket that I could have purchased 3 months ago for probably $550.


Indy = Indianapolis and not Independence Air
