As a result of airlines restructuring their services, it can be harder for fliers to find the routes they need at cheaper prices. According to a Massachusetts Institute of Technology study, carriers in the U.S. lowered the number of scheduled flights by 14% between 2007 and 2012. Mid-sized airports were hardest hit, losing 26% of flights. As a result, the cost of flights went up 4% from 2007 to 2012.
