Been tracking March airfares for some time with potential departure from 4 different airports. Closest airport is Green Bay, WI. Last Monday ticket price was $1,100 PP. Yesterday $960. Logged on this morning and had 3 price change alerts since midnight from YAPTA. Booked our flights this morning @ $611 PP. Lowest we've paid in many many years since they discountinued charter flights from Chicago.
Price above is lower than the current price of the United non-stop from Chicago that we are connecting to. Even the 12"+ snow srorm we're in the middle of can't take the smile off my face!!!!!!
Snidley, you have no idea how many times I've looked in December for Augustm saw a low price and said to myself oh it will go down after the high season this year the same back in December I could of had (2) tickets Jet Blue for $874 but instead I was lucky enough to get Airtran for $1,006.00, like you said jump when you see the price you think is good.
Based on what the news is saying, gasoline will be $4 a gallon very soon so jet fuel will follow. I got my tickets last month for week 27 travel at the lowest I have ever paid. Those seats are now$120 more per person and seem to be going up daily. If you are comfortable with the price now, don't hesitate, get them.
