Merging Airlines Means Higher Airfares!

Happy Monday Everyone:

Here in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I looks like Delta airlines and Northwest airlines are going to unite.

So what does that mean? It means that there will be less airlines competing for your business - and rising airfares...again. And other discount airlines are dropping out as well.

Even Southwest Airlines, for the first time, followed a price increase by the larger airlines.

I know, I know, soaring fuel costs are taking a huge bite out of airlines profitability. They HAVE to raise their rates.

But I still like to see more competition.

So maybe now is the time to replace even more face-to-face meetings online with video conferencing.

How many of you are feeling the pain of increasing business travel costs?

Thanks for stopping by!
