“Good news. I wonder if it will result in any kind of decline in the price of plane tickets.”
One would think this is logical a conclusion when there is competition in an industry, but history shows this is a false assumption. Yes, there may be some bargain seats with the ticketing starts this next week, but after that, most likely not.
After reading many travel blogs, newsletters, and magazines for years, it has been apparent that airlines are not out to make friends with their low fares unless they are able to gouge your wallet in other ways. Look at easyJet and RyanAir; both once offered bargain seats, but now they do everything they can to flip you over and have all of your cash fall to the ground.
