Consolidated "Why is this fare so expensive?" Thread [2012]

So as a business traveler who routinely stays at a client for just a single day or portion thereof, I am used to paying a premium for short turn arounds.

That being said, I cannot believe what I saw when I tried to book a WAS-IAH trip for 3 weeks from now: The lowest fare without a 3 day min stay (or sat stayover) requirement is a B fare for $1589!!!!! Even the $900 'E' fare requires a 3 night stay.

Simply unreal.
