Ticket pricing - is this possible?

Jump to last reply

Sunday was buying multi-city business trip for husband for 10 days out. As always, I researched fares/options - ran it by him to see if it was OK - and when I went to book it an hour later, fare had gone up $150 (on a $700 ticket). I immediately went to his computer, this time did not sign onto his USAir FF account, and cost was back down to $700. After I booked itinerary, I then signed in - all set.

Went back to my computer and again signed into his USAir account prior to searching and fare was back up to $850. Identical flights for each leg.

I had heard that airlines, cookies on computer and various spying-on-me technology can do this - but had never experienced it.
