United Airlines attempts second fare hike of 2013

Thursday, January 17, 2013

A major airline made a second attempt today to raise air fares.

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again," -- that could be today's motto for United Airlines. United tried to raise ticket prices for the second time this year.

The first attempt was on Jan. 3, when the airline raised fares up to $5 each way. However, other carriers did not follow suit. So United brought its fares back down. Well, on Thursday it tried again, this time raising fares up to $10 each way.

United says the fare hike has nothing to do with the grounding of Boeing's dreamliner jets. United owns six dreamliners.
