Traveler's Aid: Airfare Pricing Demystified (8/02/02)

Airfare pricing has never made much sense. You can fly to New York on a $300 ticket and find yourself sitting next to someone who paid twice that -- it's usually business travelers who get pinched. They pay a premium for unrestricted tickets, while leisure travelers, who tend to be more flexible, get the cheap seats. But the gap is narrowing, and that could affect what you pay for airline tickets. Airline analyst Addison Schonland tells us about the changes afoot...and, why it will be much easier to buy plane tickets in the future.
