$1100, 1-hour Flight from Buffalo to Albany

Politicians in Buffalo have been upset when Continental stopped flying nonstop flights from Buffalo to Albany, so the tried to convince another airline to fly the route.  Under the category of “be careful what you ask for,” US Airways agreed to fly between the cities once a day.  The round trip cost of the 65-minute hop?  $1170.50.  In fairness, US Airways says their partner Colgan Air sets their own fares, and I’m not one to say that you can’t charge what you want.  Good luck with that flight…
