Well Richomnd International still has a long way to go before it can be competetive with other majior airports. And its high rates are deffinatly hurting its position as a tourist destination. Of the carriers at Richmond international the only one that offers affordable rates is jet blue and unfortunatly they dont provide service to detroit go figure. All the others are way to expensive. I can't believe it I currently live in Tampa and I am able to fly to detroit round trip for only $150, from Richomnd the cost is more than double it usually ranges from $350 to $400 and that is on coach. Carriers at Richomnd airport needs it lower there fares.
