Holiday airfares see sharp increase
November 8, 2010 (WLS) -- Increased demand and fewer seats are sending prices up sharply this year.
FareCompare.com reports domestic fares are up an average of 17-percent for holiday season travel. Some routes have soared nearly 60-percent.
Priceline.com found the national average for Thanksgiving is $383. Christmas travel was even higher, averaging around $444.
Travel agents say the best way to cut down on your ticket price is to avoid flying on the most popular days, such as the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
