A congressional study says Trans World Airlines fares rose sharply at its St. Louis hub after it became the airport’s dominant carrier through a government-approved merger. The report by the General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress, found that TWA fares at St. Louis increased more than twice the national average after the company’s 1986 merger with Ozark Air Lines. In addition, the GAO said travelers from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport had fewer choices of competing airlines to many destinations after the merger.
