Oh-oh! Yesterday's Travel section of the Los Angeles Times reported that their weekly survey found that airfares from Los Angeles to Tokyo has spiked up.
They reported that they found the lowest round-trip fare to be $1,186 and the high fare to be $1,710. These are before any fees or taxes are added in.
On November 2, they reported fares to be on the low end of $789 and the high end of $1,313.
What could have caused the spike in airfares? It may be due to the upcoming holiday season (with Thanksgiving Day this coming Thursday). Or maybe not.
Looks like I'll have to keep an eye on airfares for the next two weeks.
