Are Airlines Ganging up to Fleece Us?


There is something strange going on. An unpleasant ganging up by airlines to hike prices exhorbitantly.

The price of Deli Mumbai sector, Mumbai Kochi sector etc have more than doubled, across the board.  From around 10000/- for a round trip they are 18 to 20000/.

Is it because airlines want to please Modi, by offering cheap flights to the newly opened routes by subsidizing them by overcharging us?

Or

Elections mean arm twisting by political parties for funds, of course with the understanding that prices can be hiked to any extent with no action against black marketeers.

Some may say it is holiday season, etc. But I found flights half empty when I flew to Mumbai and back, during the last few weeks.

Anyone ?
