I am an frequent flyer but I can not believe the cost of airline tickets these days!! I am looking into going to mco in August from BTV and the price is over 150 more than it was a year ago. I know that gas prices have gone up, but holy moley!! I could have gone school vacation for the same cost!!

The prices are CRAZY!! I am thankful we bought our tickets a few months ago because they have gone up in price almost 70 per ticket since January. Doesn't the airlines realize that we need our Disney Fix.
I have seen the prices go up too! I am still looking for a flight to come home on June 23rd for 4 people. Airtran's prices are outrageous- and SW doesn't have a good selection of times- UGH! (7:30am depart and 2 connecting flights)
The date of coming home is still pretty far out- so I am waiting VERY patiently!
Flying out on June 14th- I was able to snag $114.00 from SW times 4! The cheapest flight I have seen in a long time! Maybe AirTran can do the same thing!
Or at least come down so I can snag it- I guess I am being unreasonable! LOL!
Plan on costs to continue to rise through the summer-I see no relief on fuel costs going south. One way or the other they will fill the planes at high prices even if it means they cancel other flights.
I have a convention event on 12/1 and was planning on leaving 11/29 and staying at BLT, eight months to go and I purchased one way tickets on United from Newark to Orlando for $121 one way each for two of us. I never purchase this early, but fares are crazy high and I don't think December 2012 is going down.
Now I have to hope my wait list for 12/1 comes thru. I have 11/29, 11/30, and 12/2 booked at BLT Lakeview studio.
I am also biting my nails about these prices. Going to be leaving from Newark and returning to Philly. Maybe even Philly round trip. Either way, it's pretty bad. I heard the best time to buy is 3.5-4 months before your trip but who knows.
I haven't flown to WDW in years now. We used to pay less than $100 each for a round trip flight in the early 2000s. When those glory days were gone, we paid about $130. Now the least I've seen is about $260.
