What are the chances of me getting a great DING FARE from Bradley (CT) Airport to MCO on 8/25-9/2?

Last week flights were $125 each way, today $168 each way. I am freaking out holding on and waiting.

What about DirectAir from Worcester? They have a sale for $79 each way. We take carryon luggage anyhow so no baggage fees. I haven't seen many good deals with Southwest lately.

My fear is: what if they go under and leave Worcester? What about travel from Sanford to Disney, we are family of 7, what would that run us?

Fingers crossed for you :goodvibes .

We are travelling on virtually the same dates (August 26th to September 2) and booked our flights in mid January. We are flying from Syracuse via JetBlue. Our tickets for 3 people were $868 less a $15 credit. Total = $853 ($284 per person, return, all taxes and fees included). JetBlue also includes free seat selection, one free checked bag per person, free snacks, and a TV on each seat :thumbsup2 .

Prices have increased steadily since week purchased our tickets. Those same seats were almost $1100 when I checked on the weekend. Holy Batman!!! :scared1:

I, personally, could never travel with carry-on luggage only. It sounds like a good idea in theory, but hard for me to put into place :rotfl: . Add on the fact that we love to shop on our southern getaways (picking up all those great deals at the hundreds of outlet stores) and we need to check a suitcase each.

Hopefully you will be able to snag a fare that's affordable for your family. 5 boys....wow!!! I have one and he eats me out of house and home :rotfl2:. I can only imagine the laundry you do in a day!!!! What a blessing, though, to be given the gift of five sons!!

Yes, you can not imagine the laundry I do, it is crazy! As long as I do a load or two a day, I am good. And they older 3 put theirs away.

Our oldest is Jakob. They are not eating us out of house and home just yet.

A minvan for those dates at Sanford with Budget using BCD x474200 (travelocity code) and E-Coupon MUGZ029 is $325inc taxes after $30 coupon is applied when return vehicle.

Sounds like your fears might have been very much warranted, Sheaboys. It appears that DirectAir may be headed for bankruptcy:

Do a Google search for Direct Air. I would not recommend that anyone book with them and if you do have tickets, start making new travel plans. It doesn't look good.

Wow! I think I would have booked at the 125.00. That is a good price. sadly, Ding fares are far from what they used to be. We had booked Direct Air for June only to have them go under and I had to rebook with SW 155 going down and 176 home from Manchester NH. What can you do? Good luck with your search!
