so i've started making reservations for my trip in October. you would think i would get sticker shock from the international segments of my trip, but no, the domestic segments had me searching the house for oxygen. I have to fly from JFK to Orlando and then from Detroit to JFK (i already have the MCO - Detroit segment, as i'm traveling with others, who've already purchased that segment). From JFK to Orlando, the cheapest non-stop one way fare is $101 (Delta). From Detroit to JFK the cheapest non-stop one way fare is $647 (Delta) You read that right - $647 to fly one way from detroit to JFK. And this is for the beginning of November. Why the extreme difference in fares? one word - competition. Jet Blue also flies from JFK to MCO (their one way fare that day is $138 - so delta is lowballing). But from detroit to JFK, the only non-stop available is with Delta (who could have predicted i would be longing for the return of northworst). So with no competition on the Detroit-JFK route, you're stuck paying through the nose (and a few other parts of the body). It's obscene!!
