Rising airline fares may keep consumers from booking vacations that require air travel.

USA Today says that prediction comes from the head of online travel company Orbitz. He says leisure travelers might be put off by rising fares along with extra fees for services like baggage.

Last month, domestic air fares were up 10 percent and international fares up 17 percent over the same time last year.
