  • US Airfare Trend Report

    Week of March 23, 2015

  • FLYR Inc.fb.com/getflyr FLYRLabs.com @FLYR_Research

    Data cohort: Flights departing March 28, 2015 May 1, 2015 Observation period: 7 days ending March 21, 2015

    Notes JetBlue is again an outlier here, with more widespread hikes at the 7-14 days out mark. Since our previous report, United rolled back the previous weeks 40-cent increase, then

    immediately reinstated it. Fares are thus still more likely to end in a ~.00 or ~.50 than the more standard ~.10 and ~.60

    Notes Where JetBlue now takes the prize for most widespread fare hikes, Virgin America is the winner for

    most drastic fare hikes (of the fares that did change)
