Cheap corporate airfares now hard to find

Carlson Wagonlit Travel, an Australian corporate travel agency, reported that deeply discounted premium seats are becoming harder to find as corporate demand picks up (The Australian, 04-Feb-2011). Carlson Wagonlit is predicting premium airfares to rise 6-8% in 2011 on the back of higher base fares, fuel surcharges, ancillary fee efforts and new environmental taxes in some international markets.
