United tries again to raise airfares

Posted: Updated:

Fare watchers say that United Airlines is trying again to raise prices after a similar move failed earlier this month.

JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker and FareCompare.com CEO Rick Seaney said United raised prices Wednesday for travel within the U.S. by up to $20 per round trip.

United didn't immediately return messages for comment.

United tried to raise prices by up to $10 per round trip on Jan. 3 but rolled back the increase after other airlines kept their fares unchanged.
