If they follow US Air's policies, then yes, you'll see dramatic increases. I flew from Charlotte to a small city north of there a couple days before Hurricane Sandy hit and an elderly couplwe were on that segment, trying to get home sooner than booked so they could prepare a little better for the storm. They wre charged $800 to change flights and there were empty seats on the plane.

I failed to mention that US Air was the only carrier in the locale where they were headed...no competition...so the increase was their only choice. And the $800 was added to their original ticket price, not being just the total price.
