I saw the dates open, but hadn't been watching to that point and didn't recognize a good deal when I saw it. :-( Glad you got it though!

Webworm, I'm in Halifax. We have a two-week break in Feb this year to correspond with the Canada winter games here...last two weeks in Feb. off. (I am usually waaay too cheap to travel during March break!)

I do see flights with SW during last 2 weeks of Feb from MHT - Tampa for $79.00 and $84.00 one way. Looks like they all have 1 stop. The nonstops are more money. We have flown into Tampa (very nice airport) and driven over to Orlando since about 1 hr 20 minutes across the I4. There are nonstops with AirTran for $99.00 from Boston - Orlando.

Thanks for the legwork, Webworm. We have flown to Tampa in the past, just not with kids...worth considering. Don't think I want to go in Boston if I can help it--I asked a friend in Boston about the airport and it doesn't sound worth the additional trouble.

Thanks... March breaks starts March 4th . Actually if you dont count the weekend . March 7th.

End of February was same price. Maybe something will come along. Did you try Airtran and Jestblue out of Portland?

Airtran, Portland Maine to Orlando, $158USD RT, travel by Feb 9

Need to add taxes of $26.91. Total is $100.40 each way.

Still a good deal. I've seen this rate before. In fact, the only time we drove to Maine for flights was the same deal. I don't think I've seen them any lower than this for Airtran out of Portland.

I priced that out too. Too early for us by about a week--I hope the next sale opens up soon!

Deals are starting to pop up. Here's another one:

South West, Manchester to Orlando, $158USD RT, Non Stop, Travel by Feb 8 2011. With taxes/fees, $179.

US Airways, Manchester to Orlando, one stop, $118 RT, travel by Dec 8, 2010. With Taxes/fees, $160.

coastgirl: I think it's just a matter of time before these rates push further into 2011. Keep your fingers crossed.

Thanks for the link!!

We snagged JetBlue for $113 OB, and $104 IB, for next weeknd, home on the 13th.

Same flights are now $253, and up.
Both stop at JFK.

We've never flown SW before...did they install /tvs yet?
TVs on JetBlue just make life easier
Pay a smidge more (usually get JB flights for $99 OW)..and the kiddoes are happier

Allegiant out of Bangor?
Anyone try them yet?

The only issue with Allegiant is the need for a rental car or other paid-for transfer from Sanford; no Magical Express.

Received an alert today that Air Canada has return fares from Halifax to Orlando or Tampa for $306, travel by Dec 15, 2010.

However, I haven't been able to find that fare when searching Air Canada or other airfare sites.

Just an FYI in case someone wanted to do some more research for this fare.

Hi all, newbie here,
I wish I found this board a week ago....we booked a trip out of halifax for the Feb holiday and paid through the nose for flights....
We are new to the Maritimes and considered flying out of the US but really were unsure of the drive back and forth before and after the trip and nervous about not making all of the times.
I did find a flight out of Boston to Orlando on AIRTRAN for 5 people for $1000 US flying Feb 10th - and back on the 20th, but once I factored in the gas, drive time and hotels my husband said forget it, just fly out of Halifax... we paid a bit more, but at least we have the flight.
Maybe AIRTRAN is worth looking into for those still looking for flights.
