Published reports say Delta Air Lines will slash fares by as much as 60 percent in a bid by the struggling carrier to lure back fliers.
Delta would NOT confirm or refute a report in Time magazine that it plans to replicate nationwide its fare-cutting plan piloted inCincinnati last August. Domestic flight fares were capped at 499 dollars for economy seats and 599 dollars for first-class seats.
The magazine and The Wall Street Journal report that the third-biggest airline will roll out a new, simpler pricing structure and eliminate some unpopular requirements -- such as the Saturday-stay requirement. Time says the airline also plans to cut ticket-change fees from 100 dollars to 50 dollars.
International flights reportedly will NOT be affected.
Delta avoided a bankruptcy filing in October when its pilots approved a one (b) billion dollar concession, but the airline is still struggling.
Delta currently provides air passenger service in five Alabama cities.
