I went to book a flight tonight out of Kansas City to Bangor, Maine with Delta. They quoted me a price of $240. I gasped and said when I shipped to Virginia last month, it was only $206. She said the rates are going up because of the higher fuel prices.

So, before you guys get any flights ready and have to use Delta, call ahead to get a quote. It's getting super expensive to ship now.

We haven't had Continental available to us for a while in our area. I found out that United merged with them. I called to get a quote from them as well and it was $250. So, be prepared. They are socking it to us now on fuel charges and taxes.

That's a shame, but I guess they do what they have to.

That makes it harder for me to get a new glider frown I live on the west coast and many of the breeders are east coasters...shipping is one of my few options.

*sigh* Darn you economy.

Continental hasn't raised their prices yet. I just shipped last week and it was $165 which is the same as it has been for a few years.

I shipped last month too with Delta to Virginia and they charged me $206. I had the woman look twice, but she told me they just raised rates because the fuel is going up.

The problem is that here, we don't have Continental. They have merged with United and if we use United, the price is $250. Once it happens all over, you may want to check with them again for pricing.

I just called and shipping from SeaTac to St.Louis is still the $149 plus tax so right at $165. They are merging but still working independently.

Trouble with Kansas City is that they don't have a big jet from there anymore. Once in a blue moon they do though. smile You just have to catch that blue moon!
