  • Just keep looking at all different times. Try to be flexible. Fly put of air ports that are big, the bigger the better. Even if it is a drive thee has is cheaper than the difference in ticket prices.

  • I would do as the above posters said. Is it $900 for one or $900 for three round trip tickets? If it is for three, I doubt you will find any better.

  • I know how you feel I wanted to fly home in March for spring break and that is what I got but when I cut the days short like Tue. To Fri. The total was 503.96 but that was 2 wks ago the tickets are constantly changing the only reason we are not going is bc my dh made plans for us to go see snow we live in South Texas it NEVER snows here maybe 2 times in the past 20 yrs. :/ GL Hope you find it cheap somewhere I use Southwest Airlines.

  • If its $900 for all three tickets not a bad price! But you can try switching your days around it is usually cheaper to fly midweek then it is on weekends.

  • Take into account that the price of jet fuel will go up since the price of gas at the pump will up to $4 by summer time. So, airlines industry just past on the cost to the consumer. I do think the price of $900 is pretty for 3 individuals.


    Try CheapOAir to see if you can get a better price.

  • If you have time....Amtrak is very cheap and the seats are very comfy. Your children would probably enjoy if you have the time.

  • $ 900.00 is not that bad but keep checking - you might find $200-$250 r/t. Also, have you thought about an alternate means of transportation..Train? Bus?..Might be cheaper but prob
