United, Delta hike air fares

Jan. 4, 2013 at 5:11 PM

CHICAGO, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- United Airlines announced the first airfare increases of the year, a modest $4 to $10 on domestic routes.

The announcement this week marked the first fare hikes of the year and, as of Friday afternoon, had been matched by Delta, with American and US Airways taking a "minimal matching" approach, Rich Seaney of FareCompare.com told the Chicago Tribune.

The United action, coupled with Star Alliance member Air Canada, took effect Thursday and affected 1 million fares.

Seaney told the Tribune that only seven of 15 attempted air fare increases last year were successful.
