It looks like United Airlines is raising their fares by up to $10 per round trip ticket. The airline confirmed to AP this Wednesday, October 10th. No other major airlines has followed suit yet.United’s fare increase ranges from $4 to $10 per RT ticket and was the twelfth attempt this year to raise fares- only 4 have succeeded.

If other carriers don’t follow suit, this one won’t stick either. According to the AP article on NBC News, J.P. Morgan analyst Jamie Baker says that the fate of United’s increase would depend on whether Southwest matches it.
