Just saw this morning that Aer Lingus has discounted trans atlantic fares for travel to/from Dublin (JFK/BOS-DUB for $198/rt). ORD and LAX also with discounts, but I don't have the exact $$ in front of me. Clearly I have never seen a published, widely available trans atlantic fare from a mainline carrier for <$200/rt. Just wanted to see if anyone else had any information of deep fare discounts (international or domestic) as airlines start to encourage people to fly again. Also any idea if other carriers who fly competing routes to EI (CO EWR-DUB comes to mind) plan on matching these discounts???

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't this very similar to what one could obtain prior to 9/11? With very few exceptions, I saw fares after 9/11 shoot upward, and are just now starting to come down to what they were before, and in VERY few cases, lower than before. Are the airlines not intent on bringing people back to the skies??? Doesn't their very survival depend on doing so, even if it means lowering fares below the "break even" point initially? any airline marketing execs out there care to comment?

An addendum here: I APPLAUD Delta for both their 10,000 free tickets offer AND their double miles on ALL flights offer, it is deals like these that I am talking about, and would be enough to get quite a few people back in the air.. I am very close to "elite status" on three different major US carriers for 2001, and seeing these offers makes me wish that DL was one of them so that I could take advantage of these offers!!!!!!!!
