US airfares should get cheaper

FLYING should get a little cheaper, at least for US travellers as four of the online travel agencies are waiving the booking fees for both domestic and international airline tickets.  Orbitz Worldwide, Travelocity, Expedia and Priceline all hope that by waiving the charges this action will stimulate travel bookings and maintain market share for each company.  Whilst this will hopefully get more people to buy air tickets during the recession as both business and leisure air trips reduce, it will reduce the amount of revenue each travel agency accrues.
