    For reference, I have taken Houston and Dallas.

    Say you are in Houston near to William P Hobby Airport (HOU) and your destination in Dallas is Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL), the lowest airfare (the day I searched) was around $490.

    Now, add George Bush International airport to your origin and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to your destination, and the ticket cost reduces to $234!!
