Mobile airport holding its own

MOBILE, Ala. - Higher fares may not seem like such a great thing, but it apparently is the reason Mobile Regional Airport is holding on to many of its flights - down just 4 percent in capacity. Data compiled for the airport authority shows the average fare to fly out of Mobile was seventh-highest among the nation’s 150 largest airports in the 12 months that ended June 2008, and that's likely causing airlines to stick around.
