I read that flyers are expecting prices to come down because crude has dropped $20+. But the analyst said don't count on it; he said the airlines are looking to the Fall to start recouping some of their losses with higher fuel surcharges and fees. He said the goal is to increase the margin per seat. Fewer flights will put upward price pressure on the least expensive seats.
