Noticed the Higher Prices Also

I have noticed something similar for flight JAX-LAS. Often these higher prices come down as the travel date approaches, sometimes not. This is in contrast to prices almost always increasing as the trip approaches in the past.

In looking at the segments I find that the ATL-SLC and CVG-SLC segments tend to be more heavily booked than the more direct routes. Something must be going on in this area this weekend because all the flight seem to be sold out.

Delta had introduced simplifares some time ago in response to their exceptionally high fares in CVG a captive market. These seem to have gone away with bankruptcy. Perhaps they also are no looking at SLC as a captive market also.
