More Bad News for Flyers

July 22, 2008

The Washington Times is reporting that fees and fewer flights are going to make air travel for business even more of a hassle this fall.

While Continental and American Airlines have already announced plans to scale back services and cut routes due to sky-high jet-fuel prices, travelers will soon hit a new snag: the dreaded Saturday-night stay over.

United, the world’s second-largest carrier, has said it plans to put into place a Saturday-night stay policy in the fourth quarter. This will cause business travelers in 65% of the markets it serves to extend their trips through the weekend to get around higher round-trip weekday fares. And that means a couple more nights in a hotel room, a few more days eating in restaurants, and more time driving a rental car before finally getting home in time to start the new work week.

Have the high airline ticket prices caused you to change your plans? Do you drive when you used to fly to certain destinations? Leave a comment and let us know!
