Deregulation of the U.S. passenger airline industry has resulted in a few large carriers that have been successful in dominating the market, including dominance of selected routes originating from, or traveling through, key airports that have been designated as hubs. This investigation researched the simplified industry fares that were in place in the summer of 1992 and found that airfares for certain sub categories of industry routings were consistently above average industry fares. The implications of these findings are reducible to simple measures that are meaningful to the flying public.
