Fall Airline Fares Slashed Dramatically
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.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
