I pulled the trigger Friday and booked Delta for Nov 29 retuning Dec 8th out of Halifax for $983 total for two of us. That's a bit more then I paid a few years ago on Continental but I could live with the price.

I had been waiting for United to drop their prices and they did on Friday from $493 to $367 per person BUT that didn't include taxes and fees (they seem to be the only ones that don't show you the full fare on the web site!) but even then it was within $1 of Delta. The flight down wouldn't have been too bad but since the merge with Continental their return flights seem to be awful...sorry I don't want to have to be at the Orlando airport at 6-7 in the morning or fly into Newark, only to fly to Chicago and THEN to Halifax. With Delta we don't leave until a very civilized 2:15 in the afternoon

Ugh!!! Why couldn't this be Friday March 8th!!

I found flights yesterday on Flight Network. Was extremely excited going through the booking process, only to get to waiting for my confirmation number, and received the dreaded: "Unfortunately we are unable to process your request, the flights you've selected is no longer available"

It seems the downside of going on a cruise....sooo restricted on flight departure. We'd preferably like to fly Saturday March 9th, but could do the 8th. And can fly into FLL, MIA, MCO or PBI..lol We're somewhat flexible. We were planning on our return being Monday March 25th (Monday seem to be the cheaper day to come back). I've never had this much problems finding flights before.

Best I see so far is BOS to MCO and back on JetBlue.

No bag fees ... gets you into MCO at midnight (I know, not that great), but gets you into Boston very early on the 26th ... 12 hour drive to get home. But the price is good.

Wow Ted, that is awesome...thank you so much!

I do have a couple of questions for you as I know you've flown with SW out of Manchester before. They are set to release their next set of dates in a week. Based on previous years how do you feel the prices will compare? Do you know if they typically increase their fares for our March Break? I've been watching their priced into FLL and they look good "so far"..

Also, we cruise out of Miami the Sunday March 10th. We have no problem renting a car and driving down if we get better prices into MCO. We've only ever stayed offsite before, but do know our way around very well. Can you recommend a hotel to crash for the night if we choose to go this way? We were hoping to fly into FLL or MIA but for that price MCO may be the way to go. We're definitely flying back from MCO as we're staying for a week post cruise.

Thanks so much for your time and effort

*Side note: I went on JetBlue's website and can't seem to come up with that price you found. Cheapest I can find is $1737.60 for 6 people.

They (SW and others) do tend to have a price bubble when there is high demand. Clearly March 9th is a peak ... so I don't know what SW will do.

I have used priceline to get the MCO Marriott, but remember that Priceline can't be cancelled. I think I paid $45 for one night. I am actually thinking of staying at the airport on Feb 24th, since we arrive at 9pm, but I have to see when free dining starts ... so I don't want to lock up my plans.

I would simply keep an eye open for the best rate ... since you will like need 2 rooms. If i see anything within the next few months, I can give you a heads.

You do have 6 people right? I used 6 adults and picket the $145 fare for the 9th and the $93 fare for the 26th. Match my flights! 959 down and 950 return!

Booked our return flights with AC on April 20, $453.50, taxes in for direct flights MCO to YHZ. Leave at 10:30 am. Now to find flights on the April 10th to get there. We may possible fly in elsewhere and do some travelling before we get to Orlando. Car rental drop off fees are a real killer when you pick up in another state.

I'm hoping for a good deal when we go next fall. We booked with CAA last year and got flights for 5 people from halifax to orlando for just over $1700.
