Cool and exciting sometimes but on days like these it can be frustrating and stressful. Virgin Direct havent loaded the lowest two classes of tickets as yet for week commencing 09/10/06... This means that the lowest price flight is 630 ish at the moment rather than the 489 that we had been told. Waiting for a call about why this is the case....Grrrrr

Are you travelling "Back to the Future then?" Or do you by any chance mean 2006???

Flights just seem so expensive now :(

With airlines useing code shareing more and more,more flights are amalgamated so less empty seats we have a united flight in aug but the flight is with BMI also have read recent reports that airlines are seen as recovery stock ( i know a lot are in chapter 11) as analyists think they will make some money also there fuel prices have now come down a lot to well below the hurricane season

Perhaps with all the pressure from the government for travel companies to lower prices in school holidays they have taken the opposing view and decided to advertise them at higher prices?

Probably not true but it's a good conspiracy theory ;)

I was so desperate to get my flydrive for October 2006 when we booked at the end of August and the Virgin one was sold out that I got a fly drive with BA Holidays instead. We paid 599 for each of the five adults and 415 for the two kids. Too much I know but I just wanted to book it. Sad I know!

Hope you get what you want real soon. Let us know how you get on.

Airlines do this all the time they load a few classes at a time. It is really frustrating.

The 9th was best option date but we will fly on Friday 13th if the price is right. Dan my top lad Nephew who is coming with us was born on the Friday 13th so must be good luck

Update.

Just been allocated 8 seats on the flight for 10/10/06 (Tuesday) in the 469 per adult and 299 for a child. We just have to wait for the return flight load in a couple of weeks.

I am happy again :goodvibes :goodvibes :cool1:

Inquiring minds need to know: How did you get a return flight price when you've only booked one way so far? I need to book a return flight but only the outgoing is available at thye moment, like yourself. How do I book one half without paying two single trip fares?

Many thanks,

Technically we havent yet, we have secured seats in "N" I think it is which is the cheapest, we are in exactly the same position as everyone else hanging on to hope we secure the seats in "N" for the return. We can be flexible on the return to ensure we get the price.
