Bad Fare: Shuttle Bug
Jaunted Bad Fare: $54 OW, NYC-Washington, D.C.
We are not impressed with United's recently published sale fares between New York and D.C. They're offering some good deals to Asia as part of the same sale, but the one in our backyard is full of restrictions. $54 OW sounds like a steal, except it's limited to off-peak Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Great, do we have to pat our heads and rub our tummies at the same time to get the special super saver discount as well?
Even the miserable regional service on Amtrak starts at $63 OW. Really makes you long for the days when Delta would roll out and extra plane, just for you, if there wasn't a seat on their D.C. shuttle. Now, they're happy to point you in the direction of the bar where you can wait for your next flight.
