Just thinking about my October 04 flights from Halifax.. return was like $320 all in with Air Canada. Those were the days ...

I know we'll be hitting Maine one of these days for the savings (now a family of 4 who all need tickets!).. I hope Continental gets competetive!

RainbowsMist ... why add bag fees? Jetblue gives you the first bag per person free ...

You are basically doing the same flight as we did last week ...

Newark scares me in the winter though, I've been delayed through Newark and it seems to happen alot.

Also just got my credit card bill and I was wrong about my rate, it was a little less than I thought, actually $888 each way for a total of $1876!!!! for 4 of us out of Halifax, through Montreal going, direct returning with Air Canada so 2 free checked bags each.

I'm excited about the trip and even more now that my flights were under $1900

Some great deals posted here.

We've enjoyed direct flights out of halifax for 3 of our past trips; Canjet, through Transat Holidays. For our last trip, we went during March break earlier this year, so the direct flights from Halifax were out of the question. Supply and demand pushes those flights way too high during March break.

We flew Airtran out of Portland for that trip, $89 each way, plus baggage fees. Still alot cheaper that flying out of Halifax, even after paying for hotel, gas, etc.

Friends of ours are going March break 2010, and are very attached to the direct flights with Transat. They are paying over $900 per person..... but they feel it's very much worth it.

I'm toying with the idea of a quick return to Disney. Would book a flight from YHZ to MCO, if I can find a sub $400 CDN deal. Otherwise, might make the trip to Maine again.

If anyone sees a deal from approx March 10 to March 24th , please let me know.

Ted
