I just made a purchase of an airline ticket round-trip from Fort Lauderdale to Dallas/Ft. Worth in mid-June which was $49 each way for a total of $118 round-trip. How does an airline make money on a fare like this? I am not complaining or willing to pay more, but I am confused how this is even possible and why it would be offered in the first place.
(edit - to mention) Duh...I forgot to mention it is AA. It will be my first flight on American, by the way, after years of flying DL. I don't like the uncertainty over there and I wanted to N/S.
