USA Fare War AA/UA DFW 10 cities $39 to $49 one way

On Thursday I highlighted fare war activity between American Airlines and United Airlines from Dallas DFW, Philadelphia, New York and Washington with fares on dozens of routes ranging from $35 to $99 each way.

Today there looks to be even more activity around the USA with many low fare routes from both American and United out of Dallas DFW, Houston IAH, Chicago ORD, New York airports, Washington and probably more airports.

Here are some sample one way fares around today from Dallas DFW with 10 cities $49 and under. On most of these routes there are far more low fare dates with United Airlines than American Airlines.

I could go on, but suffice to say there are dozens of low fare routes and United hits American hard at Dallas DFW. American is not competing as hard as you would think. They have attacked United in other places like Houston and New York.

Basically you should check your home airport for competition today if American or United is your preferred airline.
