They just begun a new seat sale.

I don't feel as bad as I initially did. Those cheap seats out of DAY for us didn't stick around long. Initially the same flight was $25 less per person, went back 30 minutes later and they are back to what we paid.

We just ran into the same thing with Delta. I've been watching air fare from BDL (Hartford/Windsor Locks) to MCO for awhile now for our September trip, and prices have been upper $200's to low $300's.

Today, round trip, $158 (+taxes and fees) on travelocity. Even with the taxes and fees, we were looking at sub $200 air fare. We said if we could fly for right around a grand, we'd do it, rather than drive. Granted, we'll have to pay $60 to $75 in baggage fees. But we also get assigned seats, and I was able to book a whole row (which hopefully will "keep" through the check in process).

Needless to say, we booked our tickets!

Hey neighbor! (I'm from WI too!):wave2:

I'm in the same boat (or should I say airplane) as you! We've been tracking prices for our Sept trip and I just about squealed with delight today when I saw AirTran's price!

MKE to MCO, NonStop, $79!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

Problem is, I have to wait until tomorrow evening to book. DH is waiting for positive confirmation of his vacation request.:scared:
Just hoping the price doesn't jump back up in the next 24 hours!

I just checked my ressies for Airtran and my flight coming home went down $40. per person:( Go figure, huh??? I really can't complain as the cost for the whole flight is cheaper than last year, and I didn't have to pay for luggage last year....

We got our flights from Airtran for $69 each way. While the flight times are optimal for me I was happy to get those prices.
