6:09 pm
the most? >> the cheapest one. >> but because some routes go away, some worry flights to smaller markets will also go away. and that leaves travelers paying a higher fare because of fewer options. >> the concern isn't bigger cities, it's small cities. the small cities take the brunt of air fare hikes. >> reporter: one thing that is certain, change is coming to dca. back here now live at reagan national airport. now this deal is expected to be finalized earlyext moreporting m tuss, news 4. it is official now that the votes will be recount in the virginia attorney general election. republican mark obenchain made the request for a recount this morningment the board of elections certified the results
