Since the cost of fuel began soaring higher and faster than
SpaceShipOne, more than a year ago, America's legacy carriers have
tried more than a half-dozen times to boost fares -- with no luck.
Each time, they've been beaten back by low cost carriers. As ANN
reported elsewhere today, some of those carriers, like Southwest
Airlines, have hedged their costs through at least the end of the
year. But try, try again, right? This time, at least one legacy
carrier CEO says the latest fare hike will stick.
