Tanks All, but it looks like DW is dead set against flying out of anywhere but ISP, maybe LGA.


So I quess I'm driving, we usually stop in SC, I'd like to get to GA before I stop.

Can anyone recommend a good exit on I95 in GA ?

Since that's what she wants I'd make her happy and book it.

your funny.

Would anybody really pay an extra 1200.00 just to make there DW or DH happy ? When there is really no valid reason for not flying out of PHL other then I don't want to.

Last I told her was ,
What happens if the prices don't go down from NY and the price from PHL is no longer available ? Cause I'm not driving !!

She doesn't want to fly out of PHL, I don't want to drive.

Just looked on the ITA matrix (http://matrix.itasoftware.com).

Sun 17Feb to Sat 23Feb Delta out of LGA is $345.70 each ($1,382.80 for 4) with connections (US Air is only $4 more per person if you want Star Alliance). Non-stop, they are $500+.

A connection is better than driving, and $345 per person is a good fare.

Thanks, just checked it out times are no good.

wastes my whole first day arriving at 4 or 6 pm.
I'm leaving the 22nd, so I only have Sun-thurs and I want a full day Sun, arrive by at least noon.

Tpa

Have you tried Tampa...we did that last year and will probably do it this year...$200 cheaper. Was renting a car anyway, but if you weren't maybe not feasible.

Since she is refusing to fly out of another airport, she should drive!!!

Seriously, that is the way it would go in my house!

You were lucky on August fares out of Syracuse. Ours were over $1600 JB from Syracuse. We are watching Syracuse, Albany, Rochester, & Buffalo for President's Week. Also, crazy expensive....hoping we don't have to drive into Pa in Feb for flights, unless alternative is stay home! Gasp!

Airfare

Everything seems painful right now airfare-wise, but we booked this morning. It had gone up about $75.00 since this weekend alone, I figured it wasn't goin' down!! I found such a disparity among airports. We live in NE ohio. CAK is about 35 minutes and preferred for direct. Can't get a nonstop out of CLE on SW even though their route map shows nonstop...

United, et al was $400 each CLE-MCO. Columbus(PCH) was the bargain at 648.00 RT for all 3, but it's over 2 hours each way for us. So, we opted for Tampa again from CAK and saved about $200 over MCO better arrival times, but still more than Columbus, but didn't want to drive over 2 hours after our trip. TPA is a nice airport if you are planning on getting a car anyway. It was a little over an hour to WDW. Nice road, fast drive. No different for us than driving to CLE.

Hope the Airfare fairies sprinkle some pixie dust on everyone...we're gonna need it, I think!

GrumpyDad...hope you don't have to drive, but if you do... http://www.i95exitguide.com/index.php

I encourage you to use that fancy search tool I listed, as it is really good. For instance, I found the following (15Feb is Fri, 16Feb Sat)

- US: 15Feb 6:30pm from HPN to MCO (via CLT) $399

- US: 16Feb 6:20am from ISP to TPA (via DCA) $377

- US: 16Feb 12:00pm from JFK to MCO (via CLT) $398

- AA/US: 16Feb 12:15pm from JFK to MCO (via DCA) $357

- US: 16Feb 3:30pm from LGA to MCO (via CLT) $398

- AA/DL: 16Feb 4:35pm from LGA to MCO (via ATL) $386

- US: 16Feb 5:15pm from ISP to MCO (via DCA) $400

Yep, lots of options. Now if you lived here in the Pacific Northwest, you wouldn't have so many options (and I didn't even list those from EWR, SWF, HVN, and a couple others).

Good luck, and enjoy the drive

These were just a fraction of the search results. Tons at any time during the daylight hours go to and coming from multiple airports within 40 miles of Long Island.

Yes, we were very lucky. Fares rocketed up after we booked (our purchase was mid-January), at times more than doubling our original price. Our flights were with Jetblue as well.....direct flights both ways.

Just got a credit this morning from Airtran for our Christmas flights . Saved $20 pp each way. That will cover our baggage fees. Happy dance! (every little bit helps, right?)

I bought our tix from PIT to MCO for 9/29 to 10/6 in area of $210 PP when SWA released the schedule. Approx $100 PP more RT than 2 years ago, last year was 1st big bump for us as to airfare expenses.

I watched the Oct trip fares pp bump up to almost $700 PP, my reservation became a bargin lol.

OT it appears my DH doesn't have to be back to work on 10/6 now, a Sunday, the day before Columbus Day. For giggles I checked the same last NS flight out that day and it was $114. Not sure if there's usually that sort of flexibility on Sunday returns since I always book Saturday, but the difference in price vs $350 one way pp for a new booking returning a day later would more than pay for a extra day's expenses for most folks.

thanks, but am i doing something wrong here.

I checked into thsi and the flight for 377.00 leaves 6:20 am on the 16th and arrives the 18th.

That would not work at all
