    My advise always is whenever you see a price you are happy with book ASAP.

    Today I found flights for next Easter, £432pp on Ebookers, they have been about £550-600 recently.
    Got home confirmed with Karen they were OK, got them back on the screen, meal was ready, I thought they have been there for past 3 hours, just eat this then book. Too late they had gone:sad1: Only biz class showing at £1,039.

    A shame but if your son is coming up to exam times may need to be revising.

    Oh that's a real shame.

    Usually a Yorkshire man thinks of his wallet, rather than his stomach:lmao: Well the one in our household does!

    Never mind, something else will be along soon.


    It's just not meant to be.

    I feel your pain! Been watching our May flights for several months now, and have been holding rock steady at £937 (PE). Then, out of the blue then went down to £856. No one was home, so had to wait for the others. By the time they got home an hour later, they were back up to £938 :( So I can totally sympathize with you. But as others have said, a better deal is just waiting for us around the corner! :goodvibes

    Well after more than 2 weeks of looking I am considering paying £546pp for indirect. More than I have ever paid for a flight.:scared1: London is a bit cheaper but only by £60pp so not worth the trail.
    Only good points they are perfect times get to Tampa for 5:30pm and with Continental so can claim Virgin airmiles.
    Virgin want £1,038 from Man £928 Gat.

    Makes indirect Biz class at £1,000 look cheap but didn't want to spend so much on our Easter trip.
    Will not be happy pressing buy now a £546.

    Congratulations on getting it sorted :thumbsup2. Now, will you stop looking or won't you be able to resist looking for the deal that got away? ;)

    Hi Moira:goodvibes

    Not bought yet, will be either this evening or tomorrow afternoon when I get chance, unless they disappear also.
    I will still keep looking every few days, helps for future bookings.
    We usually book a lot earlier but didn't think we were going til August. I know people booked around £350 for these dates months ago. Can't win every trip.
