The Path Less Travelled

I was looking into some potential flights for my mom to come visit us down in Greensboro.  When we flew here from Seattle, the tickets were about $100 each ... so I was really surprised to see such expensive tickets from New York, upwards of the $400 range.

Just out of curiosity, I checked the price of tickets from Greensboro to some other airports within driving distance, like Raleigh or Charlotte.  The cheapest, listed on Expedia:

Bear in mind, this an hour and half drive ... or a 7.5 hour flight, plus any time needed for transportation, security, etc.  And this was one of the best.

Whew.  Even a taxi would be cheaper.

Yeah, I hate stuff like that. From what I've seen it's typically those smaller airports that really haven't be de-facto 'de-regulated'.... and don't really have enough competitive flights heading in for.

And seriously, any time you fly anymore you need to add about 1 hour of padding up front for body-cavity searches and so on...

So, I'm thinking you could bike to your mother's quicker than flying. ;)
