In the wake of this summer's United Airlines' debacle of cancelled flights, delays and labor shortage, the world's largest airline has cut its fares by half for travel now through Dec. 14.
As of Wednesday, at least seven other airlines matched United's fares. All of this comes just after carriers increased costs by adding a $20 surcharge for rising fuel costs.
Here's a sampling of the fall deals:
- Boston-Denver - $288,
- Chicago-New York - $198,
- Los Angeles-New York - $598, and
- Washington, D.C.-Orlando - $198.
