Crazy August Prices :0(

Been watching for our dates 22nd July to 8th August or thereabouts. Virgin were showing miles plus money availability up until yesterday afternoon at £730 - went to book 7 seats last night and gone! Checked today thinking it might be the number of seats I wanted to boo but no, all gone ............and the normal prices have gone through the roof ............. £900 odd for most dates, over £1000 for weekends and Wednesday 24th "no flights"

Really hoping this is a blip and that indirect goes down - indirect showing over £700 right now.

Know its early days but really wish I'd got them at 11 month window now.

Anybody else waiting?

Going to get Matt off to Uni then go away early Nov then start to look at next year. Its going to be complicated though as at the end of our holiday we will be driving upto North Carolina and leaving Matt there at Uni for a year, dreading sorting the flights.

Thanks Wayne, you'd think after this many years I'd learn .... But still in a frenzy ..... Think you're right I'll wait ... £622 indirect into Tampa best at moment .... Sure I can improve on that.

I looking to go next year anytime in August, I priced Virgin flights a couple of days ago and for 2 adults and a child it was over £2500. Im hoping to find something for around £500 each indirect, I expect direct will be too expensive for us as we're going in just over 3 weeks.

Fingers crossed we both find something!

Ba were cheaper for us for next August direct. Tampa was £1100 cheaper than MCO for the 4 of us so it was a no brainer! An extra 30 mins in a car is worth a saving if £1100.

How much did you pay for your Tampa flight? Last time I looked they were more than BA? To be fair that was into MCO though

All the 1.00 pm flights on the dates I'm looking for have disappeared .... Only the 11:15 showing ..... So wonder if there's a problem and it's throwing silly prices into the mix ...... Let's hope so

Hi, we paid 3k for 2 adults and 2 children for BA direct including a domestic leg. That worked out to under £800 each which for peak summer hold with a scheduled direct we considered good (ridiculously ... Wish we could fly with more flexible dates and pick up the cheaper flights)

I think over the past few years the two direct scheduled airlines eg. Virgin and BA in August you are lucky to get sub £800 per person. I have a friend who goes every year and she has struggled in the last few years to fly scheduled and direct in August for less than £800 per person although others may have managed to xxx Good luck x

For summer it depends if you are patient, have airmiles to use, be as flexible as poss, this year you could get Miles and money Premium Economy both ways for just over £700pp. We got reward seats using our miles. There were some regular direct economy fares for about £650pp but many managed to get good indirect flights for about £450.
Maybe your £800 will be good this year but its more than I am willing to pay, we will see what happens in the new year when I start looking seriously.
