This paper questions the generally held belief that there are significant passenger fare savings and increasedpassenger traffic growth due to airline deregulation. Unlike previous studies, passengers and passenger fares arebroken into discrete distance intervals and compared to passenger and fare distributions prior to deregulation.Except for the period immediately before the terrorist attack in 2001 and continuing through 2005, there are limited, ifany, demonstrable domestic system passenger fare savings. Also in contrast to other papers showing significantpassenger fare benefits, virtually all data of this paper is accessible via the Internet
