JFK-LAX $3,439.00?

Sat Oct 04, 2003 2:36 am

What is the most that you have ever paid for a coast to coast trip IE: JFK-LAX / YYZ-MIA / YVR-DFW this includes a return trip! I was just looking on expedia.com to book a flight from YVR-DFW and NW had a real good deal!!
 Insane Only 2647.23 return!! What an Awsome deal!! (better be an empty plane and a front seat in the cockpit!)


Best reguards,

PS- found a better deal with America West airlines  Smile

Just searching... not actually paid.

Not coast-to-coast, just one hour and a half each way, does it qualify?

$1232.00
Washington, DC to Detroit, MI: 382 miles 1 hr 34 min
United Airlines Flight UA7200 on a Canadair Reg. Jet
Departs Washington, DC (IAD) Mon, Oct 6 8:26a 1 hr 34 min
Arrives Detroit, MI (DTW) 10:00a

Detroit, MI to Washington, DC: 382 miles 1 hr 27 min

Wow, that even worse for a short hopper, And its not even ample leg room!! for that price youd think youd be at least in a 737, or 757.

The quote above for the IAD-DTW return ticket is an excellent example of what is wrong with the hub system of single-carrier dominance at major U.S. airports. At DTW, of course, it is NW, and at IAD, it is UA. They can set the price without fear of any real competition.

Just one of those tickets pays for almost all of the cost of the flight...
