Any advice on booking a flight? We cruising from FLL. We have flown there several times. We have flown there to cruise out of Miami. We have gone in March two other times before. My problem is that it is just too expensive. I have usually paid up to $300.00 or less in the past. These flights are $661-1000 per person. I have checked different airports in the vicinity but am not seeing any thing cheaper. Has anyone left in mid March recently and found that the prices go down at some point?? Southwest has not opened travel for this time but my experience is when they open they are close to the going rate as other airlines. I have been watching prices and they have gone up $100 in the last two weeks or so. Very depressing.
I think I would just keep checking, you have until March. I've notice the prices change daily and sometimes a few times in one day. As soon as you find a price that you can live with, book it....Good luck and hope something opens up.... These days, the air fare is almost more than the cruise.
Do a search for regional airlines like Allegiant, and find the airport they (and airlines like them) fly out of closest to you... We drive an hour to Plattsburgh NY, and save close to a thousand $$$ for a family of 4, compared to flights out of Buffalo. Worth the drive, and the flights are almost always direct.
We cruised in march in 2012...the issue in March, it's spring break & it's in full swing,and prices were through the roof ......we finally ended up with Spirit,and a price we could sort of live with....
Trip, with her book & tea!
