I saw a similar recent article (same Co.?) I'm doing a similar thing with airfares. I have three trips booked from FLL (Ft. Lauderdale) to various Latin American countries. The seats cost (if I recall $0.01, $7, and $9 each way). Most of the fare is for taxes, duties, etc. I honestly don't see how the airline can afford to sell seats so cheap. My bus fare from Buttplug (FL) down to Ft. La-de-deh is about $78 r/t, in fact more than 2 of the 3 airfares. Sadly, the cheapo line doesn't come close to my home. Go figure!
