Will discount plane tickets get you to travel?

AirTran, which flies out of the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, announced it will sell discounted seats through the middle of the fall, some as low as $39 one-way.

Other airlines quickly matched the fares on the routes where they compete.

The sale prices are in response to the dramatic slowdown in travel. It's Economics 101: raise demand by lowering the price.

But is it different this time? Will people travel, or are they just too frugal?

Will you splurge on a quick getaway?
