Airfares Going Up 18 Aug 11

Minnesota travelers looking for deals on fall and winter airfares will find some, but perhaps not too many as airlines cover high fuel costs.

Airline analyst Terry Trippler says there will be some low fares for fall and winter travel, but there’s going to be less of them on each flight.

Trippler says Delta and other major carriers are trimming the number of available seats to assure full passenger loads. He says that will save the carriers money, but travelers will have to look hard for bargain fares.
