    I tried to plug in all the information and the best rate
    they gave me was over $900 per person return! (The
    deal was $288 to Orlando)

    I guess the only way to find out is to call the toll free number.

    HOLY COW!!!!!!

    This isn't much of a deal at all!!!!
    Sorry, I saw this special and thought someone might be
    able to take advantage of the $149. price tag.
    but I guess it is only a way to lure people in.

    The only things I can think of :

    1) they want you to call and book on the phone

    or

    2) as you said-maybe one way- if
    you take $149 x 2 + about 40% tax/fees
    you'd get about $420.00 return?

    $420 is still better than what I've been seeing lately-
    for TO to Orlando things have been between $630-730
    lately.

    Our tickets have run about $380-$440. I think anything around the $400 is a fair price (that includes taxes).

    I once saw Flight Centre advertise $139.00 ROUND trip to Orlando. I called and the taxes were $140! It was still a good deal, but I don't like intensionally being mislead. However, they all do that, so I don't take seriously their deals. S

    I think we've done well as I've got us booked on Southwest Airlines and was lucky enough to get non stop flights too!;)

    The total cost for each of us is $185.00 US return which is about $286.00 CND so I think I did pretty good as I couldn't stand to pay all the taxes from YYZ.:(

    We booked on Air Tran from Buffalo for $170 return for both of us it's about $480 Canadian, there is a short lay over in Atlanta but it's really easy and we've done it before. Also we're leaving on the Friday night flight a 7:50pm so we don't have to take Fri off work.
