I am probably not the best person to respond, as we have only flown from Buffalo once (we prefer Syracuse due to our location) and it was during Christmas week (which is generally higher priced), but our flights for December 2012 were $350 return per person. Non stop both directions, one way via AirTran and the other via JetBlue.

I have seen MUCH better rates from Southwest, JetBlue & AirTran during non peak periods.

Back in May I flew with Southwest at a fare of $175 but on average I pay anywhere from $200-$230 and typically fly with JetBlue. For my upcoming trip over labor day weekend I am flying Southwest outbound at $154 and JetBlue return for $94 (just because the times suited me better) which comes out to $248 but I suppose its a little more because its a holiday weekend?

I fly this route most March Breaks. Last year on JetBlue was most expensive. We went down a week earlier for our break so on March 2nd, and we paid $131. On the way back we flew back the 15th, the day everyone else is flying to, and paid $210. (more then I am used to) I have went in Feb and gotten $89 each way, and one year $72 on AirTran out of Rochester. This year for Xmas break we are flying Southwest on the 23rd, of Dec and back Jan 3rd from Flint, Mi to Tampa, and paid $102 each way non stop.

We also lucked out the other day, with a tip from transportation boards for jetblue on March Break 2014 (they aren't released yet) but someone on the Transportation boards gave a tip about Hipmunk.com and jetblue flights to Orlando in March. I was very lucky with this glitch and got JetBlue on March 7th to MCO back March 15th for $125 each way non stop. It all went through Jetblues website and I can look up my reservation via Trueblue members.

Thanks for your replies, we are going at the end of Feb and I wanted to know when the rates come out what I should be looking for.
If it's under $250 I'm going for it lol

Flint MI, how is that airport? I'm kind of in the middle in Southwestern Ontario.
I could easily do any SW Canadian city or Buffalo, Detroit, Flint is 2.5 hrs etc.
I like Buffalo myself best but would never pass up a great airfare lol

We are flying from Buffalo to Orlando on August 14. We got flights on Southwest for $250 per person (non-stop, return) Normally, we fly out of Detroit (on Delta or Spirit) because it tends to be quite a bit cheaper. Although the flights were a bit more than we normally spend (usually $200 or less per person) the fact that we don't have to drive 4+ hrs to get to Detroit as well as not having to pay for baggage made the decision to fly Southwest an easy one!

We fly BUF-MCO on Southwest once or twice a year. Usually January and April.

Lowest we paid was $447
Highest we paid was $721
Thats for our party of 3. We only fly non-stop.
Average $79-$99 per person per way!

I stalk Southwests website every day! It seems as if we book our January flights in October each year. That when I've found the best prices. We usually go the last week of January into the 1st week of February.

We just booked for the end of September, Southwest, for $187.80 taxes in, return, direct flights. In 2010 we paid $150 return but I haven't seen it that low since. I was pretty pleased with our rate for this year!

Need a roundtrip flight for my wife in late August MCO/BUF, but there's nothing lower than $164 one way. I was hoping for $200 roundtrip max. Amd Allegiant doesn't fly between BUF/MCO during that time period, otherwise I might get something even cheaper - drat! Think there'll be any sales in the next few weeks?
