American Airlines has increased domestic roundtrip
fares $20 in the latest attempt to offset skyrocketing fuel prices.
Spokesman Tim Wagner said Monday the airline implemented the
increase Friday night. He says the airline is sticking with the
increase but has no update on whether other major airlines have
matched it.
Airlines have increased fares about a dozen times this year.
American also has announced other new fees recently. One was a
$15 charge on the first checked bag that drew the ire of
passengers.
The price of jet fuel has doubled in the past year.
