Airline fares seem due to fall. Southwest is already offering $59 one way fares. My sister Carole in New York was able to get round trip fares to Florida for $50! The cost of getting to the airport and parking was almost the cost of the ticket!

The new Boeing 787 and the existing A330 are designed to increase the ability to do more off-hub, point to point transportation. On my way into to visit last weekend, I flew from Seattle to New York...but I did not land in Neward, Kennedy or LaGuardia...I went to an airport on Long Island 10 minutes from her house...West Islip!

You will see more of these regional airports handling traffic direct to the suburbs and exurbs leaving the center cities behind.

That didn't work for me.
