Highest Airfare

Even as a frequent flier out of CVG this still suprised me. According to the lastest US Department of Transportation study ... "Travelers flying out of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport are paying the highest average fares in the country, even as low-cost air carriers steal market share from the major airlines that are slashing fares elsewhere."

This is because Delta has such a monopoly over the CVG market. Also, CVG is one of the only major hubs to have NO service from any LCC's.

Lots of folks travel to Louisville, Columbus or Indy to get much lower fares. A few Low Cost Carriers have tried the Cincinnati market but Delta quickly lowers their fares and runs them out of town. On the positive side, being a Delta hub/Comair headquaters most flights are direct.
