Ted,

I actually tried booking twice yesterday via Orbitz and Priceline. Both were showing these low fares however when it went to processing payment it came up it was unable to confirm pricing and availability. I then went over to Air Tran's website and it's showing OVER $900 PER PERSON return Just double checked again, same thing.

I don't know what is going on with AirTran's prices but they are sky high right now... over $1000 per person from Portland to Orlando return for March 2-9.

Jet Blue's prices are also slowly but steadily going up as well.

Right now it is cheaper to fly US Airways from Bangor (about $650 per person return).

I'm hoping this trend reverses.

(Fingers crossed)


John

march break airfare

Hi there - haven't been on here in awhile but I am considering planning a surprise March break trip for the family and am trying to find a great deal on airfare. DH is a teacher so we are limited in the days we can travel, but I'm thinking we could go March 6th on a 5pm flght out of Halifax, or March 7th or 8th. Returning on March 16th, 17th or maybe even the 18th. Have considered driving to Bangor but the prices don't seem much less for the 7 hours of driving and travel time we would lose.

If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them - will also read through the chat again in case I've missed anything.

Rainbow -I think I am trying to book airfare for the same trip, considering Carnival Breeze on the Sunday. But we are more limited in our travel days because of the whole teacher thing. I will let you know what I find, I have also been checking out different airports in Florida on the other end.

I will try Orbitz as Ted seems to use that and see if I get better rates than I do on Expedia.

Yes! We are on the Breeze Sunday, March 10th from Miami. I've been trying MIA, FLL, PBI, MCO. Hopefully tomorrow when Southwest opens up there will be something! We're limited too as I also work in the school board

I just booked Southwest out of Manchester, NH for 2-9 March 2013. $2400 return for 6 of us, direct non-stop flights, 2 free checked bags. Best web fare if you don't care about flight times is $165 per person each way.

Anyone finding anything for the week of March 16-23ish? I am a teacher so my dates are stuck at the 16 to the 24th. No other options, but my sister could easily fly out a day or two before or after with her hubby and kids. We found a great deal with Air Transat a while ago for them, but couldn't book at that time. Now I'm feeling like it's WAY too late. We'll drive somewhere if we can get really cheap tickets on a direct flight, but I can't see anything direct as far away as Portland. Even driving to Halifax is not really worth it for her if it's not direct. She's got 2 little girls (5 and 2) and a 17 year old who will be 18 when we go...
