What Does US Air Use for Brains?

I'm all for congestion pricing to get people off the road. But I don't quite understand why US Air is using it to convince people not to fly on their airline.
We're heading to Boston for a family wedding. Round trip airfare from Philly to Boston is nearly twice what my kids are paying for flying a longer distance, DC to Boston. That was crazy already.
Then we went to make a one-way reservation for another one of us, from Boston to Philly, and the flight is more expensive one-way than two-way, nearly $500. Needless to say, forget it. But it does make me wonder why US Air wants to treat its customers like this?
