Transcript for Major Airlines Raising Ticket Prices Just Before Holiday Season
And just in time for the upcoming holiday season, major airlines are raising ticket prices. Rebecca Jarvis has a key tip for travelers this morning. Just as you're getting ready to book that trip over the river and through the woods, the airlines are now hiking fares. United, delta, U.S. Airways, Jett bleu and southwest all upping round trip tickets by $4. It may not sound like a lot, but on top of the fees, just another blow to customers. Reporter: It's the fifth fare hike so far this year. But what makes this one infuriating for some travelers, it comes just as the airlines are reporting record earnings and falling fuel costs. If oil prices stay here, the airlines will save $8 billion over the next year. But those tickets to grandmother's house over Thanksgiving, they're still getting more expensive. From Chicago to Dallas will now cost you about $400. That's 4% more than last year. The key is to book now. After today, tickets will go up 5%. Reporter: Or for the cheapest seats, book those tickets for Thanksgiving day. For "Good morning America," Rebecca Jarvis, ABC news, new York. Great advice, thank you.
