Say Goodbye to Summer Airfare Deals

Fewer seats and more travelers returning to the skies means you can forget landing a cheap airfare deal this summer. A survey of the average round-trip purchase price of an airline ticket on Travelocity.com found prices are higher by 13.4% than last summer, and slightly higher than 2008. The average fare for all domestic and international flights purchased on the travel site jumped from $415 last summer to $471 this year.
