Fliers have seen the price of airline tickets rise during the wave of consolidation that's hit the industry, and that's unlikely to change even if the American Airlines-US Airways merger is halted, some say. The average ticket price has jumped more than $27 from 2008, as fliers have had fewer airlines from which to choose. "It's too late. It's already a very consolidated industry," said Savanthi Syth, an airline analyst with Raymond James. "I don't know if you want to stop an industry from being profitable."
