Thought about a vacation in March 2014 and flying West Palm Beach, FL to Panama City, Fl.
Airfare without security fees or passenger facility charges topped $ 650 round trip. For $ 130, I can drive round trip.
Being a long time LUV customer - 1980's - I flew Muse Air out of Houston when I lived there before LUV bought them - I find this to be disconcerting. While realizing LUV may not be the lowest fare in a market - this is ridiculous!!
I hear you completely....LAX to Vegas.....Nothing under $300 round trip. Fuel to drive $40.00. No airport shuttle, no pat-downs at the gates, the freedom to leave exactly when I want. Why would anynone fly unless they absolutely HAD TO.
