Airlines are taking advantage of the lowest cost airline tickets on the market.
They’re flying more often, too.
According to an analysis by National Geographic, American, Delta, Southwest, Virgin America, Frontier, United, Alaska, and Alaska Airlines have increased their low-cost flight allotment from a year ago.
Airline travelers are getting cheaper too.
Airlines have been slashing costs at the airport and at ticket counters, and the latest trend is to have smaller, more intimate seats, which are a good thing for those who are traveling on small planes, according to a report by CNNMoney.
Airlines are now charging passengers at least 50% more than they charge the same fare for a comparable seat.
Some airlines are even charging passengers for additional amenities.
In a recent survey of about 1,000 American, Southwest and Alaska passengers, nearly half said that they would choose to pay less to travel by private jet, according.
