CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Ticket prices have been rising for US Airways customers despite the company posting its first profits since 2006.

Fares have increased across the network three times this month.

US Airways says it is offsetting rising jet fuel costs.

The company went on to say it is easier to raise prices because business travelers typically will pay more for tickets.

Other people we talked with disagree and say people are already paying enough.
