CNN - Get ready to pay more for airline tickets.

Delta and American airlines say they are raising ticket prices.

Company officials say travel prices have been lower for the past two years because of relatively low fuel costs and greater competition.

But now, the companies feel justified in raising ticket prices because of higher labor costs and a strong demand for air travel.

No word if United or any other airlines plan to follow the trend.
