I think my email said the same thing. But when I took a look later, the 26th popped up. Guess we'll see tomorrow.

Kayak just quoted me Jet Blue pricing out of Reagan for our September trip. JB site, however, will not yet allow booking.

Good Morning,

I am planning my trip for October and while the leaving flight is now available to book (and at a pretty good price) my returning flight is after the cutoff. Does anybody know if there are any drawbacks of booking my leaving flight now then the returning flight when it opens up or should I just be paitent and wait until the flight schedule is extended?

Thanks.

That's great...about what I paid last year during October.

Unfortunately, this year we decided to fly out Friday instead of Saturday, and that decision looks to be costing me about $40 per person.

I am in the same boat, but I just bought the flight *to* Orlando because of the prices, but don't have my return flight. Last year, the best prices offered were right when they released the schedule, so that's why I pulled the trigger now.

I don't think there's a downside to booking two one way tickets instead of one round-trip. I did a bunch of searches on the JB website, and there never appeared to be any special pricing either way (two one ways or a single round-trip).

There could be an upside: JetBlue will give you credit in a JB account if your pricing goes down and total flight costs are less then your original ticket. With round-trip ticket the total cost had to go down...but with two one-ways, if either end of the flight get cheaper, you can get credit for just that one flight.

No downside at all. I booked our flights down, Sept 1, awhile ago. Just booked our flights home. Poor dh has to fly home on Sunday, the 8th and is paying $138 one way...MCO to BOS. I fly home on Tuesday, the 10th, MCO to PVD, and pay $70!!! Lucky me!!!! And it doesn't leave Orlando until 5:30ish...so I get a lot more time in the parks on departure day!!!!!

Thank you. Now if I can just get my DH to agree on the dates I can book

GrnMtnMan: Do you remember about how long after the dates were released that the prices jumped? I am going to try to book in the next few days. I'm hoping the prices will still be as good.

Not immediately....maybe a week or so, but I only vaguely recall.

Surprised to see Sept come out more expensive then August

We normally go mid Sep (right after Labor Day), which is low travel time, but are going late Aug instead. I was afraid August airfare was going to be much higher. Ended up paying 282 RT pp for late August thru Labor Day. Had we stuck with mid Sept, we would've paid 327 RT. I'm thinking once we get closer to the travel dates Sep rates will drop more than Aug ever will..but I hope I end up with some Jetblue credit towards next year. Do rental cars for late August run about the same as Sept?

Just took another look at my flight....price is up already, from $117 to $136.

I forgot to mention before: price might have been in the same ballpark at times, but it never got lower when I checked (which I did with some frequency since JetBlue provides credit if your fare goes down).

The last two years we've ended up around 200 with Alamo for a full size once, and a van the second time. This is for the last week of August into Labor Day weekend for 10 day rentals. On both occasions I found my best price about 6 week out from the trip but it's always a good idea to watch consistently.

It's hard to say what it will be like this August. The rates for our upcoming February trip have been astronomical.
