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.
Welcome to the Dis, seasideliz!!

If flights are over $2000 for the 4 of us, we drive, and consider it part of our vacation.
And of course, stop and shop on the way home

We booked points on AC out of YHZ to BOS, and took the Amtrak to Florida....stopping in DC and/or NYC along the way. That's a fun trip

Next trip, we're thinking about driving to DC, and taking the Autotrain.

Love the planning almost as much as the vacation!! LOL

Delta airlines, departing May 4/11, returning May 13/11. Have been looking for about 2 months fares were anywheres from $280 to $300, so I have been waiting for the price to drop below $250. We have gone down the last 4 years at this time of year and the most we paid was $252 so I knew eventually the price would drop. Checked Tuesday, $269, Wednesday $240, so I booked 4 return flights. Checked again on Thursday just to see, $251. We are doing the 3 day cruise, then staying at OKW for 5 nights.

Really hoping fares for March start coming down (besides the ones for Tues/Wednesdays)..starting to get a little worried
Last year we snagged excellent fares on New Years day with AC non stop to MCO however that was for April/May..this year I'm restricted to March break (give or take a day or two) so we're expanding our departure city to BOS, PWM or MHT..still not looking good. Found an excellent non stop return fare to BOS but really need to find a way there before I can book it!
I'll definitely need a vacation after all this airfare stressing!!

Don't forget flytransat.com .. their fares drop like a rock a week or two out. I remember seeing direct flights a few days before departure for $29 (+ $200 in fees or so!).

Kayak .com has a Westjet direct both ways flight Jan 29 - return Feb 5 or Feb 12 for $425 return taxes included. I think that it is an excellent price for a direct from Halifax.

Whoa, really Mike? That would be something!

I think this is getting addictive. I have my flights booked for Feb and have quite decent routes and prices now, thankyouverymuch, but OMG I can't help looking! And now that I know how to change my res on SW (no penalties, just do-it-yourself), it's gonna get reallllllly bad.

air transat

In 2008, I got the 49.00 fare from Moncton direct to Orlando for 4 and the airfare was only 900.00 or so. I used some hotel points and got Univ and Sea W tix for the week, the trip was really economical, but time comsuing to watch the rates. It was a great trip and the flights were terrific. If you are flying Transat sign in for the Kids Club, you can bypass the lines and they get a small gift.

Aubie 881 you booked on Delta through Portland, I see sometimes you can get Halifax departures on Delta to Orlando, any thoughts on this? If you were wathcing the rates for a bit, what prices have you seen on a NS/NB departure through Delta if any?

Not Aubie but I have watched Delta from Halifax off and on, and basically took it off my list because it never seemed to get cheap...Delta was an AC partner and seems to "run" price-wise with AC. (Don't know if they still are with all the "alliance" changes.) That said, I haven't been obsessive about it, and I may not be catching the good stuff from Delta! (I keep closer tabs on WestJet and Continental from YHZ because I have hope...)

Well I feel just sick now I was so worried with the price of flights out of Halifax compared to last years great prices that I jumped this past week and booked out of Boston for our upcoming March trip. Well I just got an email and the prices have dropped A LOT!! Our family of 5 could now fly for $2000!! I paid $1000 out of Boston, but when you factor in the 10 hour drive, hotel, gas and food we'll really only be saving about $500 now. Seemed so much more worth it when we were saving THOUSANDS and Halifax airport is only 40 MINUTES from our house!
