Transatlantic Fare War (Cont . . .)
Now it looks like Virgin’s getting into the act as well, dropping fares from NYC to London down to basically $0 (too bad you still have to pay those pesky fuel surcharges and taxes). This cut also marks a forgettable milestone: British travel decreased in 2008 for only the second time ever. You know it’s bad when the Brits are sticking around home. I challenge you to name any trip in your life where you didn’t run into at least one Englishman. Try it. Yup, impossible. Just like time travel and learning Finnish. Never going to happen.
