Northwest Airlines today announced that it has selectively matched an $8 -
$9 roundtrip domestic price increase imposed Thursday by Delta Air Lines
on all of its fares in markets served with connecting flights.
Northwest has matched the increase in connecting markets where it competes
with Delta, on most discounted fares that are less than Northwest’s
regularly priced fares.
Northwest Airlines is the world’s fourth largest airline with hubs at
Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Memphis, Tokyo and Amsterdam, and
approximately 1,500 daily departures. With its travel partners, Northwest
serves nearly 750 cities in almost 120 countries on six continents.
