It's merger related to the extent that you now have the UA revenue management, which was producing the best RASM in the business pre-merger, instead of PMCO revenue management, which was not nearly as good at extracting the most from every traveler.

Fares to PHX or TPA may still be cheap, but where there's strong business demand you're going to see expensive fares: IAH-WAS minimum fare for a 1 weeknight stay is now $1500; if you stay 3 nights or a saturday, it's $250.
