Sit down now and look at these fares. These are nonstop flights from major hub cities to places many folks want to travel to. They won’t last long.
Frontier Airlines has been having a ton of fare sales lately. Some of these occurred over the busy summer travel season and represented great values. As we move into fall, we should generally see more sales (and better ones) to fill in empty gaps throughout the rest of the year when travel is a little slower than the heart of summer. These are the lowest prices I’ve seen Frontier offer. This is a one-day sale. Today’s Frontier Airlines sale features $15 one-way fares. Here are some sample fares: From Washington, DC: Atlanta […]
I’m at Web Summit this week in Dublin, and I ran into some info about Aer Lingus that made me reconsider them as an alternative to British Airways and Lufthansa for flights from the East Coast to Europe. As an aside, Web Summit is about the craziest and most interesting conference I’ve attended, all at the same time. First, Aer Lingus announced that they’ll be flying DUB-IAD starting next year. They’ll be flying the DUB-IAD route with either an A330-200 or A330-300, depending on demand. But, according to the folks […]
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway today for a free American Airlines Admirals Club day pass. My favorite airline, American, is announced new service to Asia.

I posted quickly yesterday some initial thoughts on the lawsuit that the US Department of Justice filed to block the American Airlines/US Airways merger. I spent some more time yesterday and this morning and have a few more things to offer up. I went through the full text of the complaint last night (just over 50 pages) and carved out some items I think represent DOJ’s main thoughts here as well as some items I disagree with. Keep in mind I was never strongly in favor of the merger so […]
Uber is a great example of using technology to disrupt the travel space. The airlines (and to a lesser degree, hotels) have been slow to innovate. Given, it’s harder to change technology in a business with as many moving parts as an airline. Not so in the taxi/car service industry. Uber is a service that allows you to schedule and pay for a car service in a variety of major metropolitan markets. The website currently lists 38 cities where you can use Uber to help schedule your car. They’re also […]
