Airlines

Fall airfare sales get underway

August 21, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Airlines are cutting fares deeper than usual this fall in an effort to fill seats.

American and Southwest both launched fare sales this week, and United is running several sales too.

Although it's common for airlines to use discounts to fill planes during the slower fall travel months, the discounts this year are deeper and more widely available than last fall, FareCompare.com Chief Executive Rick Seaney said.
